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”.
Wekiva fully supports the SCPS philosophy of the “Three A’s”: Academics, Arts, and Athletics. We are proud to be ranked an A+ school for the 14th year in a row!

In addition to outstanding academics, Wekiva also sponsors many clubs and activities.
