Im not satisfied with what ive seen this year. My son's teacher is disrespectful and i feel she treats him differently then other students. They try to hard to be an A+ school.

Growing up in St. James in the 50s/60s, I attended Pine Island Elem. Prior to its opening, children from St. James & Bokeelia attended J. Colin English. I believe it was 1962 when Pine Isl. Elem. opened. I was in 4th grade, and once the new Pine Isl. Elem. was ready, we Island kids were transferred there--pretty exciting stuff! Back then, on really cold days, our bus would pull into the school, and the janitor would have a big fire going in a big oil drum--we'd all scramble off the bus and hurry to the fire, holding our hands up in front of it to get them warm, then laughing, playing, and scurrying off inside to our classrooms ...I doubt that the outside fire would be allowed today, but it was sure was fun and warm back then! We'd also race up and down the walkways--I feel once and still have a bump on my right knee that reminds me of fun at Pine Isl. Elem. And when I was in 5th grade, during recess after lunch, they'd play records in the cafeteria--the twist! Many kids liked to dance; I did a few times, but I and my tomboy friends still preferred to play softball in the back on the east end of the playground. Such wonderful memories I have of Pine Island Elementary!

This school truly shows teawork and dedication to the students! No child gets left out or does without, and they all show great potential.

Those that attend this school know that without it as the base of their education, they would not be able to succeed as high when moving on later in life. The teachers there are above outstanding. Each and everyone cares about each individual pupil at the school. The Principal for the last couple of years has been outstanding. All in all, this school can provide so much for your child, I believe its the best there is.

About the tests


In 2013-2014 Florida used the Florida Comprehensive Assessment Test (FCAT 2.0) to test students in grades 3 through 10 in reading, 3 through 8 in math, in grades 5 and 8 in science, and in grades 4, 8, and 10 in writing. The FCAT 2.0 is a standards-based test, which means it measures how well students are mastering specific skills defined for each grade by the state of Florida. The FCAT 2.0 has 5 achievement levels, with level 1 being the lowest and level 5 the highest. Florida considers scores of level 3 and higher to be on or above grade level. The goal is for all students to score at or above level 3.

About the tests


Florida uses School Grades to measure the overall performance of a school each year on the Florida Comprehensive Assessment Test (FCAT). Each school is assigned a letter grade (A-F) based on three criteria: the overall performance on the FCAT, the percentage of eligible students who took the test, and whether or not students made progress in reading and math. The School Grades are calculated by adding points earned from each of the performance criteria listed above.
