From SCPS Superintendent - Dr. Walt Griffin
Greetings SCPS Families,
Walt Griffin, Ed.D  
As a district, we strive to provide our students with the best tools, resources and education possible so that they can become college and career ready. We are proud to announce that Seminole County Public Schools has been ranked second in the state in the 2017 Best School Districts in Florida by Niche. This recognition is notable because, unlike our state grading system, the Niche Rankings are not based solely on test scores. Their ranking system factors in student culture and diversity, educational outcomes, health and safety, as well as taking into account student reviews. According to Niche, "a high ranking indicates that the district contains great schools with exceptional teachers, sufficient resources, and a diverse set of high-achieving students who rate their experiences very highly." Receiving such high rankings across such diverse criteria shows just how well-rounded and progressive we are as a district.
