Based on data requested by Tallahassee Reports, Godby High School has the highest number of home school students in Leon County with 231. Godby is followed by Leon High School with 220 and Rickards High School with 196.
These numbers are based on students that enrolled in the public school system and at a later date elected to home school. There are approximately 1,000 home school students in Leon County that never enrolled in a public school.
