Our Principal's Message

Jewett School of the Arts Magnet is welcoming and expressive of the Fine Arts and STEAM from the moment you pull into the parking lot of the school. We strive to cultivate a welcoming atmosphere that focuses on providing a well-rounded education by providing the student body with exposure to the fine arts (theatre, art, dance, music) and infusing STEM into the daily education of our students. The motto of JSA Magnet is every day is a GREAT day at JSA!

The Vision of Jewett School of the Arts is to provide the pathway for faculty, staff, parents, and community to cultivate, through communication, a sense of ownership, spirit, and pride in the school. Not only must students be prepared academically; they must be fostered with a sense of cultural awareness which includes an appreciation of the arts, acceptance of diversity, and the community.

School History

Jewett School of the Arts opened in 1964 and was opened as Jewett Elementary. Robert King was the first Principal. It was initially a Kindergarten – 6th-grade school (for African Americans only), and later became a 6th grade center for the Winter Haven area, due to integration. In 1993 it became a Pre-K – 5th-grade school and in 1994 a School of Choice for the Arts. Jewett Serves 745 students. The Jaguar is the school mascot. As a school of the arts, Jewett offers Theatre, Art 2D & 3D, Orchestra, Band, Chorus, Dance, and is a STEAM Magnet School
