Mr. Steven Royce, Principal

Welcome to Gocio Elementary, “Home of the Owls”. Gocio Elementary has over a twenty-year history of excellence in the Arts & Academic Achievement. We offer full-time gifted/advanced classes in grades KG-5. 

We have talented faculty, supportive parents, eager students, and a great community.  You are cordially invited to be a part of our great Gocio family. Whether it is by volunteering your time, joining our Gocio Booster Club, serving on our School Advisory Council, becoming a Business Partner or by visiting your child’s classroom. Gocio offers a multitude of after-school enrichment opportunities, including gardening, ballet and tap classes, run club, tutoring, technology classes and more. We strive to provide our students with an array of enriching activities to complement our academic program. As you browse through this website, I believe you will understand why the staff and students are proud to be “Gocio Owls”.  If you are interested in joining our family, I encourage you to call the school at 941-361-6405 to set up a tour.  I am confident that after you visit Gocio, you will agree that this is where you want your child to attend elementary school.
