The mission of Wakulla High School is to provide an education program in a safe environment that contributes to the development of each student emotionally, academically, and physically in order for him or her to successfully function in our continually changing, diverse society.
The vision is that the majority of the students will graduate from Wakulla High School with not just a diploma, but also with the technical knowledge, the academic skills, and the personal qualities needed for future success.
Wakulla High School is the sole high school serving Wakulla County. It was built in 1967, when the county's population was below 6,000. As of the 2000 census there were 22,683 people who called Wakulla County home, and by 2012 that number had grown to 30,818. In the 2019-2020 school year our student enrollment reached 1,487 according to Focus.
Throughout the years, Wakulla High School has celebrated many remarkable achievements through academics, athletics and extra curricular activities. Our school has been recognized as one of Florida "A" high schools, the War Eagle football team has won State Championships and our WHS band continues to consistently bring home the highest awards in state competitions, just to name a few.
Wakulla High School lives its beliefs. In our academics, our athletics, and our clubs and other extracurricular activities, we have raised and maintain the expectation in and of our administration, our entire staff, and our students, that to be a Wakulla War Eagle means something special. This is a place where the whole is greater than the sum of its parts, and a place where that abstract whole infuses each of its concrete features with life and meaning.
