Seminole Heights Grammar School was one of the earliest schools to open during the period when Tampa residents were relocating to Tampa and Seminole Heights. The original wood-frame school was established in 1915 and was located on the southeast corner of Hanna and Central Ave. In 1922, a new brick building was erected across the street with additions in the mid 1920’s. The brick building of 1922 was reported to be one of the first schools to utilize “modern” water fountains. Seminole was noted for its gateway posts at the Central and Hanna entrance of the school which still stand today. Seminole Heights Elementary remains a focal point of the historic Seminole Heights neighborhood.
