Welcome To Our Website

Built in 1927, Inwood Elementary is proud to be part of Winter Haven’s Centennial Celebration. The school was originally built with three classrooms, and 2 teachers taught combined classes of 1st, 2nd, 3rd and 4th, 5th, 6th grades. The rest of the school was comprised of an auditorium, clinic, eating area, and principal’s office. Since that time, Inwood has grown and expanded its facility to accommodate an average of 400 students (K-5) and 33 teachers. Our latest improvement – a brand new, beautiful cafeteria – was completed this past summer in time to be open for the first day of the 2012-2013 school year.

Despite great growth and advancements, Inwood Elementary is still a true neighborhood school. All of our students either walk, ride bikes, or come to school in cars, since we use no busses. As we celebrate 85 years of learning, Inwood Elementary is proud to be a vital asset to the city of Winter Haven, and we look forward to our 100th birthday!

  On the morning of June 4th, our 5th grade girls came to school dressed in their finest, and were treated to Inwood’s traditional formal tea party.  Guidance Counselor Mimi Hoecker, along with several staff members, planned this lovely event, transforming the Media Center into a charming tea room with delicious sandwiches, pastries, and punch.  We wish each of our 5th grade girls the very best, as they look forward to starting Middle School in August.                                          below: Erin Rodgers, Jacqueline Mack,                                                                                          Angela Thompson (5th grade)
