Strawberry Crest High School is a public high school in East Hillsborough County, Florida. It opened on August 25, 2009 with students from Armwood High School, Durant High School and Plant City High School. It was built to relieve the over-population of the students in these high schools. Along with Steinbrenner High School, it is the most recently constructed high school in Hillsborough County. Strawberry Crest is the 4th high school in Hillsborough County to be certified as an International Baccalaureate high school. A number of the instructors for the IB courses come from the International Baccalaureate Program at the older C. Leon King High School, in Tampa.

David Brown, former principal of Leto High School, is the current principal.[2][3]

The school is located in Dover, Florida. The school mascot is the Charger which is similar to the logo of the NFL team Denver Broncos. The school colors are red, black, silver, and white. The school was named Strawberry Crest in order to honor the strawberry growers of the region.
