My name is Scott Schneider, and I am proud to be in my 2nd year as your Robert E. Lee High School Principal. I am married to an amazing wife, who is an elementary teacher here in the county; and we have two wonderful children, Grant and Sterling. After graduating from Terry Parker High School, I received a Bachelors degree from the University of North Florida in Special Education and a Masters Degree from the University of North Florida in Education Leadership, Go Ospreys! Prior to becoming an administrator, I served 6 years as a classroom teacher and instructional/ESE Coach at the secondary level. I served one year as a district support specialist as well. My administrative experience began right here at Robert E. Lee High School. We began my first year 10 points from an "F" and after my third year we were a "C” with a National Model Engineering Academy. I then spent 2 years at Jean Ribault High School where we were labeled as an "Intervene" high school. Ribault had an overall school grade of an "F" when I began and within 2 years we achieved an overall school grade of a "C" due to a dedicated staff of teachers and a lot of hard work. I begin my Principal career at Terry Parker High School where we achieved the highest gains in the district, the highest points ever at TP, the highest performing Title I high school, and so much more in just 4 years. After my first year here at Lee I am proud to say we moved from 4th in Title I High Schools to 1st!! We had the 2nd highest L25 gains in Math and were among the highest in Reading among Duval County High Schools. I have no doubt that we can achieve even more successes this year and those to come. I am grateful to be at Lee and on the Westside of Jacksonville. Our motto is “We are Generals! Destined to Lead”. I believe this embodies what it should be to call your-self a General. Our school will be second to none. We will not follow others but rather make our own path to success. Go Generals!
