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!
At Inwood Elementary we believe:
- Our students can learn.
- Our students can make academic gains.
- Our students must stop and think.
- Inwood is a nurturing community.
- Our teachers provide solid support.
- Our school provides a safe and orderly environment.
- Our students benefit from educational partnerships.

Inwood's Green Team
The Green Team (JOOI Club) consists of 20 students and two staff members, Barbara Westfall and Sherri Maynard. In its 8th year, the club is sponsored by the Optimist Club of Winter Haven, and participates in Clean Up Winter Haven. The team meets monthly and works on campus beautification by picking up trash, pulling weeds, and maintaining the Butterfly Garden. The garden is dedicated to Sony Georges, a former student who passed away while attending Inwood Elementary. The memorial stone was donated by the Optimist Club.
Thanks to the Green Team, recycling is a school-wide effort at Inwood. Nine members of the team go to each classroom once a week, to pick up recyling items from the classroom bins. We thank the Green Team and their sponsors for a year of hard work and dedication - they are truly an asset to our school and the community!
