Welcome to Independence Elementary School

It is my pleasure to welcome you to the most amazing school community in Orange County Public Schools! It is our mission to help every child feel welcome and ensure that each student knows he/she is a vital part of our Independence family.

Independence had tremendous success over the past two years:

• We earned an “A” school grade both years. Our students’ FSA scores were some of the highest in OCPS. I even received a congratulatory letter from Governor Scott about our students’ FSA scores.

• We won the Golden School Award which is given to schools with exemplary programs that promote parent and community involvement.

• We were named a Five Star School both years. This award is given to schools with exemplary community involvement.

• We were chosen as the recipient of The John Gardner Award of Excellence (Little Red School House Award) by the Florida Association of Elementary School Principals for our academics and community service.

We are looking forward to another productive partnership with you to ensure our children can achieve their highest potential. Working and learning together, we will reach the collective and individual goals for academic achievement for all children. We encourage your membership in PTO (Parent-Teacher Organization) and SAC (School Advisory Council). Joining will give you a voice in the Volunteer/Academic environment at our school. My staff and I hope to continue our journey in education by remembering each day that we have the most precious thing in a parent’s life, and that is his/her child. I am honored to be able to see the smiling faces of my students each morning.
