Gifted Studies at South Ocala

  • Welcome to South Ocala Elementary School! One of the greatest responsibilities in our community is to uphold high expectations with duty and diligence to ensure that our children get the best education possible! South Ocala Elementary has a long-standing history of excellence, performance, and community engagement. Our esteem originates from a shared-commitment to quality expectations for our students.


    South Ocala Elementary believes that ALL students achieve when the learning experience is personalized and intentionally planned to inspire, challenge, and motivate! We provide a uniquely designed educational experience to ensure that each student:

    1. Develops a solid foundation for a successful educational career.
    2. Fully participates in rigorous academic conversations focused on discovering more about the world and their place in it.
    3. Builds lasting relationships with intellectual peers, teachers, and other role models.
    4. Broadens a self-awareness that includes citizenship, positive social change, and personal accountability


    As part of the Success at SOE experience, students learn and apply organizational skills, time management skills, and project-based learning. They are responsible for co-creating a plan for learning, maximizing the use of materials and resources in self-directed work, and using rubrics, guidelines, and other frameworks to self-evaluate their progress toward learning goals.
