Welcome to Maitland
Maitland is one of the oldest incorporated suburban municipalities in central Florida. Although the area was previously inhabited by native Americans, the town is named after Fort Maitland, which was built in 1838 on the western shore of Lake Fumecheliga(later Lake Maitland) during the Second Seminole War. After the war the fort was torn down, and in 1843 the area was settled. This settlement came to be called Lake Maitland, and later Maitland. After the Civil War, the area was put into extensive citrus production.
Lake Sybelle Elementary School
Welcome to Lake Sybelia Elementary School’s website. Our theme for the 2015-2016 school year is “Learning is the Adventure of a Lifetime.” Our teachers and staff are looking forward to a school year filled with learning and growing. I know we will all work together during the upcoming year to maintain the high standards for education that Lake Sybelia has enjoyed for so many years.
Lake Sybelia is fortunate to have a high performing staff and parents who are committed to the success of all of our students. This partnership has made it possible for our school to be a Five Star School and to receive the Golden School Award.
Maitland Middle School
I am excited to serve as principal of Maitland Middle School! I have worked for OCPS since 1982 as a teacher and administrator in both elementary and middle schools. I have served as principal of Discovery, Memorial and South Creek Middle Schools. My husband and I have a married daughter who is 27, and two boys, ages 21 and 14.I will be in and out of the office attending conferences and training this summer, and meeting with the team to learn how to best serve the students, families, staff and community of Maitland Middle School.
Orangewood Christian School
2015-16 was “The Year of Thinking Strategically.” In the coming year, we will begin laying the foundation for what OCS will be five to ten years from now. As Americans, we have short attention spans, and educational institutions are large ships that turn slowly. We must lay a solid foundation to continue our growth. To accomplish this, we will continue to develop our Master Site Plan, Strategic Plan, and our Strategic Financial Plan.
Stay tuned for more to come.
I look forward to a tremendous 2016-17 academic year!
