History

Construction began in August 2007 and was completed in June 2009. Its first principal, Dr. A. Robert "Rob" Anderson, was originally principal at Edgewater High. For its opening year, Nona served grades 6–11. Middle school students moved to their own campus, Lake Nona Middle School, in the 2011-12 school year leaving Lake Nona High School to serve only grades 9-12.

In Spring of 2012 Lake Nona High School allowed Valencia College students to go there while the new Valencia College was being built. The students from Valencia College were there until the new building was fully constructed in August 2012.

The average SAT Scores for this school are exceptionally high at 1690 Combined (Including Writing).
