As a parent, my perception is that this is a greath school and rates an A in my book. The teachers and principal go out of there way to keep the students excited about learning. Very positive atmosphere. With teachers like Ms Garner, you can see why the students do so well.

Elliott Point has been a blessing to me and my children.I work at the school so I see alot that goes on at the school.My son has attended here since K.Now he is in 5th grade . He will graduate this year and thanks to the teachers and staff at E.P. he is ready to move on. The teachers are great! The non instructional staff are also wonderful. There is caring and hope for all the children. We have Art,P.E. and Music.The Library and A.R.are great incentives for the children to read more.My daughter is now in the 3rd grade.She also started here in K. She struggles with Math some ,so she gets extra help in this area.I am glad to have the help for her.Of course if we don't do our parts as parents ,our children will suffer.It all starts at home.The teachers give their all but we must also.

Ms Stein is an exemplary leader. Her dedication and the dedication of her staff to the students is truly commendable. My daughters both attend this school and love it. It is small enough to give each student the individual attention that young growing minds need. Ms Stein knows each students name and their skills and shortcomings.

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.
