Help Us Keep The Robert E. Lee High School Name
Founded in 1928, Robert E. Lee High School has one of the most distinguished histories in all of Jacksonville.
Our alumni include former members of Congress, Mayors, current and former judges and other elected officials as well as professional athletes and entertainers who have gone on to international acclaim. Our classrooms have produced not only leaders in education, business, law and medicine but people from all walks and stations of life who are proud to be Lee Generals.
We have alumni of all races, creeds, religions and identities. All educated at Robert E. Lee High School.
The intent of this website is to provide information helpful with to ensure the Duval County School Board to take into consideration the opinion of those of us who believe that their job is not to engage in the politics of the time, but to educate the next generation.
We believe that changing the name of Lee or any other school will do nothing to better prepare our children.
Therefore, we the alumni, parents, students and friends of Robert E. Lee High School respectfully request that the Duval County School Board focus on the job that they were elected to perform.
Educating our children.
