Wimauma will use the best educational practices to guide instruction and provide an environment that will enable students to reach their highest potential and to become life-long learners.
Wimauma will be among the top performing schools in Hillsborough County.
Wimauma Elementary School was built in 1926. It once served grades K through 12, but now houses grades Pre-K through 5. Our school is surrounded by large oak trees, both inside and outside the campus grounds. It is a neighborhood elementary school which serves a racially diverse student body. Since Wimauma is a farming community, its residents include seasonal migrant workers, so student population does fluctuate somewhat throughout the year. We are a Title 1 and Rennaissance School.
In 1902, Captain C.H. Davis helped build a railroad between Turkey Creek and Bradenton. He founded the small rural town of Wimauma (pronounced "why-mama"), a midway point between the two areas, that same year. The town’s name is taken from the first letters of his three daughter’s names, Wilma (Willie), Maude and Mary. The community is located in Southeastern Hillsborough County east of Sun City Center and south of Balm. State Road 674 bisects Wimauma, and is dotted with taquerias, groceries, and family-owned businesses. Lake Wimauma and the nearby Little Manatee River State Park are landmarks.
