Lakewood Ranch High School in Manatee County, Florida, United States, was opened in 1998 in Bradenton, Florida. It is named after the housing development it borders, Lakewood Ranch. The school had 1,800 registered students as of 2012.
In the 2011-2012 school year, Lakewood Ranch High School was awarded the two highest honors given by the Florida High School Athletic Association. The Mustangs placed first in the Academic Team Champions and the Floyd E. Lay Sunshine Cup, All Sports Award. Lakewood Ranch was the only public school in the State of Florida to win both awards.
The school was in the news in 2015 when a teacher, Hollis Ann Morantes, was arrested on drug and child neglect charges after methamphetamines were found at her home in reach of her child. Morantes was placed on administrative leave and later resigned.
