A Message from Dr. Oliver L. Phipps:

As the principal of Shadowlawn Elementary School, I wish to extend a warm welcome to our current families and those who may look to join the Shadowlawn Family, home of the Seahawks! Shadowlawn Elementary is rich in tradition and we are proud of the long history of accomplishments of our entire school community which is reflected in our Florida school grade of an “A” for school years 2016-17 and 2017-18. Shadowlawn Elementary School is a dynamic learning community, which maintains the highest of academic expectations and positive social change while celebrating the diversity of our student population. The tradition of excellence is evident in its long history of helping students build upon their strengths while refining the academic skills necessary to be successful in middle school, high school, and life. The integrated practice of The Leader in Me Process, Professional Learning Communities, standards-based instruction, and data driven decision-making are the foundation for our approach to helping students. We continue to aim at serving our students and community and look forward to the opportunity to work with you in the future. Please feel free to stop by and visit us as we value our parents and community as partners in the learning process. We welcome the opportunity to show our Seahawk Pride!
