School History

Initial Development

Built on 25 beautiful acres, ground was first broken for R. Bruce Wagner Elementary in July 2001.  We first opened our doors to students on August 7, 2002 and have since grown into a dedicated school focused on learning, thinking, communicating…together.

Our school is named after the former Area Assistant Superintendent for the Lakeland schools.  Mr. Wagner served the boys and girls of Lakeland for 38 years.  He still lives in Lakeland.
