Thirty-six Osceola County schools have been designated as Five Star Schools earning the Florida Department of Education's most prestigious award for community involvement. The award is presented each year to schools that have shown evidence of exemplary family, school, and community involvement. To qualify, each school must meet 100% of the state's established criteria that require the full engagement of business partners, volunteers, students, families, and School Advisory Councils in the educational process. Every Five Star School must prepare a portfolio to document how they model excellence through specific community involvement programs.
