The teachers at this school have to work several times harder as support at home regarding education is not strong. Many students come to school primarily to be fed, and discipline is an issue overall. With recent rezoning (two years ago when this school went from an A to a D) this school is now nearly 100% free or reduced which means almost all students are living in a poverty situation. A child with a generally stable home life can and will do well here as there are many programs available to help get children "up to speed," however many students that need it do not take advantage of it. There are great programs here. There have been three different principals in three years, as well as an entirely new front office and almost completely new teaching staff. Uniquely this school operates on a longer school-day schedule, as well as offers many after school and before school tutoring, enrichment and academic support programs. Teachers here want to help the students as a whole and need more support from the families to accomplish a higher school grade/standard. My children were enrolled and did well at this school, but again, they have a strong academic support system at home.

I live in Va., I have visited this school twice, because my grandchild "currently" is enrolled. This school is a Zoo! I was in the office for 2 hours. 8 to10 am. I saw more children come there late than I had ever seen in my life when my children were in elem. school. One child you could hear screaming over the walkies, whoever was on the other end was saying call the mother, call the mother!! The parents look like they had just pulled themselves out of bed, some even look like they were under the influence, standing there making up excuses as to why their poor child was late, again! The police make regular trips back and forth to the school. In just the two hours I was present, the police came because a student could not contain themselves or the staff could not handle the student. When I was leaving, a fire truck and an ambulance had arrived and someone came out strapped to the bed. Again, this is not my first time visiting this school. Oh, and the front office staff, they speak very sweetly, with a condescending tone. In Va. I have only seen the high school's having to call the police, not elem., schools. Thank God my grandchild is an honor student, but for how long?!

I think the school does a good job using technology. All the classrooms have smart board technology and there are 3 computer labs. The garden program won awards this year and the school was awarded the Keep Brevard Beautiful Award several times.

Academic programs are used very adequately and seriously. Most the time when the children go to activity of physical education sadly, they don't do much and don't have much fun this is the only negative thing I can say about the school. Parent involvement is very low but other's who work there take up the slack and try their hardest even when they are scheduled to leave, they will stay and help a child. Have been very happy with the results of my childs academics and recieves the utmost opportunities the receive the best schooling possible. Endeavour never receives credit for the good things that go on, only the negative gets printed in the paper. Very sad since my daughter has been there for 5 yrs. and is doing very well. The staff is awesome. Have been very happy and would recommend to anyone.

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.
