School Mission

The mission of Lena Vista Elementary School is to provide students a positive, rigorous learning experience to become productive citizens within our community.

School Vision

Every Lena Vista Student will be prepared academically and socially for success in middle school.

School History

Lena Vista Elementary is a federally funded Title One school located at 925 Berkley Road in Auburndale, Florida, on beautifully landscaped property.  Built in 1956, Lena Vista has provided excellence in education for more than half a century.  We are very fortunate to have wonderful volunteers and business partners who help enhance each child’s learning opportunities.  Lena Vista Elementary has been named a 5 Star School for the past ten consecutive years.  The Five Star Award is given to schools for community service and community involvement efforts by including family, volunteers, school advisory councils and business partners.

School Technology

Lena Vista Elementary is infused with technology.  The majority of our classrooms are equipped with Lightspeed Surround Sound systems.  We have SMART Boards and LCD projectors in every classroom Kindergarten-Fifth.  Also available to each teacher for checkout are SMART Senteo and Qwizdom Student Response Systems, digital cameras, document cameras, and other technology equipment.  Teachers are consistently promoting the use of technology in guided lessons and in small group settings both in the classroom using one of our 5 Mobile Laptop Carts or in one of our 2 Computer Labs.  Lena Vista’s four technology coaches provide professional development throughout the school year to staff members on new software programs and digital devices to further integrate technology into the classroom.

The Lena Vista Elementary PTO is a very active organization that supports parents, teachers, students and staff members.  Through school-wide fundraisers, PTO is able to purchase incentives for students, gifts for staff appreciation days and help offset costs of field trips.  We appreciate our PTO greatly!
