Pasco County Schools is proud to offer many high-quality educational options at each of our great schools. While most students are assigned to a school based on the location of their residence, our district provides families with a variety of school choice options and programs. We encourage students, parents, and guardians to explore all that we offer and to choose the best option for their student based on his or her unique learning needs and interests.
