Jaguars roaring by and by Of red, black and white Ardor, courage, truth abide Forever swelling, unrelenting pride In honor of our might our cries arise Where we did unite West Florida High
We pledge our allegiance to She who led us through Lessons with relation to The fields which we'd pursue The threshold of our lives is breaching nigh The memoirs of our time West Florida High
Our ambitions realized To which we had aspired Jaguar spirit is recognized Established and admired Amidst the lofty pines tradition lies For as the years go by West Florida High

West Florida High School of Advanced Technology is an "A" school, where accountability makes a difference. WFHS blends required core academics with technical education, developing students' skills in communications, mathematics, science, and technology. Experienced, expert instructors merge leading-edge technology with challenging curriculum to ensure confident graduates with a vast array of options and opportunities for successful futures.
In 2001, a group of forward-thinking community leaders and educators established West Florida High School of Advanced Technology (WFHS). WFHS was originally, as it is today, a traditional high school offering the same opportunities to students as other high schools in the Escambia County School District. However, in addition to the traditional high school experience, WFHS is a wall-to-wall Career Academy school. Students have the added benefit of belonging to a career academy that further develops their skills and knowledge in a career area of interest.
West Florida High School of Advanced Technology is an innovative high school focused on providing a unique, comprehensive, useful education that will lead to lifelong personal, career and professional accomplishments.
The mission of West Florida High School of Advanced Technology is to prepare students for entry into chosen career fields or higher educational pursuits through incorporation of quality learning experienced by integration of academic and technical skills.
Because learning is a valuable and lifelong process, the administration, faculty, staff and students of West Florida High School believe the following:
