Our Vision

In partnership with home and community, Sikes Elementary is committed to educating productive citizens of tomorrow.

Recent History

Sikes is located in the south end of Lakeland and primarily draws students from South Lakeland and Mulberry. The school focus has continued to center around increasing student achievement and meeting adequate yearly progress in order to build a strong community of support for the students, staff and the lowest-performing students. Core and supplemental researched-based materials are used to guide instruction. Our professional development is centered on increasing teacher knowledge and raising student achievement.  We will continue the implementation of quality instruction, active learning, and higher-level thinking skills.
