Growth momentum in the Cape Coral Education System is sustained by continuously expanding public and private school systems with high performance standards. Public schools are operated by the Lee County Board of Education, which is planning to construct as many as 40 new schools in Lee County in the next decade. As of 2009, the Board of Education operates 8 elementary, 6 middle and 4 high schools in the Cape. The school Board maintains an informative website at www.lee.k12.fl.us.
The City of Cape Coral has created a municipal charter school system. It provides a challenging educational environment founded on the Core Knowledge and Cambridge Curricula. Since the system is public, there is no tuition. The municipal charter schools are available exclusively to children who live in Cape Coral, providing curricula from pre-kindergarten through high school. The system is leading the way in academic performance among public schools in the city. Additional information on the Cape Coral Education - Charter School System can be found at www.capecharterschools.org.
