Wekiva Elementary School
Wekiva Elementary is a special place where teachers, staff and students can laugh, grow and learn together. Visitors to our school note the positive energy when they walk through our doorways. Our parents generously volunteer their time to work with students and support the school by raising money for various projects that help to improve our school. It is truly a community effort.
Wekiva Elementary was built in 1978 and is located in the heart of the Wekiva subdivision, a golf community of 1500 homes with winding bike paths, two small lakes, three parks, tennis courts, and nature trails. Wekiwa is a Creek Indian word that means “spring of water”. Wekiwa Springs is the head water of the Wekiva River. Wekiva means “flowing water”.
Sabal Point Elementary School
Sabal Point serves a diverse as well as mobile population. Many of our families are new to Orlando and Florida. We have attempted to instill a welcoming atmosphere at our school.
Currently, Sabal Point houses students in grades K through 5. Exceptional Student Education programs include Pre K, Specific Learning Disabilities, Gifted, ASD and Speech/Language. Students attend school in three twelve week sessions with a two-week Holiday break in December/January and a one-week Spring break in March. Because Seminole County Public Schools will host after-school tutorial sessions at the end of each twelve week session, instead of the traditional summer school, students will be able to receive remediation before the end of the twelve weeks rather than waiting until the end of the school year.
Woodlands Elementary School
We have set sail and have had a wonderful beginning of the school year. It has been exciting to see our students return with positive energy and ready for another school year filled with new and engaging learning opportunities. I would like to personally say “THANK YOU” to all of our parents for working with us to follow our safety procedures! It has really helped us with smooth arrivals and dismissals. If you are a new Woodlands family, we welcome you wholeheartedly and encourage you to become an active member of our school community.
Milwee Middle School
When R. T. Milwee Middle School was originally built in 1923-1924, it was named Lyman School after Howard C. Lyman. Mr. Lyman was on the local board of trustees for the bonding and building of schools in Seminole County and a well-known civic leader who helped found Rollins College. He had been tragically killed in a driving accident at Daytona Beach in July 1923.
The new school, replacing one room schools in Longwood and Altamonte Springs, was built where the roads from Casselberry, Altamonte Springs, and Longwood converged. It opened in 1924 with six rooms under the supervision of Howard C. Douglas. In 1926 it became an accredited junior high school under Herbert Chaffer, and six more rooms were added due to increased enrollment. The school had a fast growing library and a lunchroom run by PTA.
Teague Middle School
Teague Middle School is located a short distance from the junction of SR434 and SR436 in Altamonte Springs, Florida.

The curriculum for Teague Middle School is based upon the Florida State Sunshine Standards. View an explanation of the “Next Generation” Standards at the Florida State Department of Education.
A safe environment is needed for student success. Teague’s plan, Action Steps for Students, provides such an environment for our students.
Greenwood Middle School
I welcome your return to the GLMS campus for the 2015-16 year. I hope the summer months have provided opportunities for rest, reflection and renewal. The GLMS staff has been busy attending workshops and trainings, revitalizing the campus and preparing for the addition of Art and Robotics to the curriculum. In addition, we are excited about the renovation of two science labs, allowing for the use of increased technology in the science program. GLMS continues to SOAR toward being highly effective.
It is always important that we provide our students and staff with a learning environment that is respectful, safe, and academically strong. To assure that this culture is ever present, students and staff will be introduced to a revitalized Positive Behavior Support Program, a new traffic pattern for movement on campus and academic expectations that include fidelity to academic programs and instructional plans, campus wide student engagement, cooperative learning and both academic and behavioral interventions.
