I am a Jacksonville Sales Manager that recently had the opportunity to participate in "Wise Money Week" as a volunteer for Junior Achievement of N Florida and wanted to comment on a wonderful experience I had at Oak Hill Elementary. Principal Amy Bright and her staff made me feel extremely welcome. I was equally impressed to speak with teachers/staff to hear, observe and really understand how much they care and all the hard work they do for the students. Mrs. Battinelli was especially gracious to me throughout the day and her children were fully engaged and eager to learn, ask many engaging questions, and share in many fun laughs with me. I was really moved by how much I could see the children cared about their school and especially what a visitor like myself thought of them and Oak Hill Elementary. On top of having a really fun & learning day with the class, I also ate lunch with them and observed the additional effort and caring Mrs. Battinelli gives her students throughout the entire day. When I finished for the day, it was evident to see the passion Mrs. Battinelli has for teaching and how the students truly want to make learning fun. Would be an honor to volunteer again!

This school is going down hill, in the past 2 years. I'm getting my children out of the school as soon as I can.

As a substitute teacher, my experiences with Oak Hill have all been positive. The students were well behaved for the most part and the teachers all were so nice and helpful. The neighborhood the school is in isn't the greatest but is seems like a good school.

My son is 5 years old in the Autistic Kindergarten class at Oak Hill Elementary. His teacher Ms Amy Santiago is wonderful. The structure and guidance provided by the Teacher is exactly what we had hoped to find for our son. He' learning and thriving at Oak Hill. We compared Oak Hill to other schools and found it to be the best!!

I am very impressed with the school. This is my son's first year and he excelled. I am thankful for his teachers (especially Ms. Sigler) and the administrative team. Ms. Jones is a wonderful leader that truly cares for each child. My son is looking forward to next year.

My daughter has attended Oak Hill since Kindergarten. She has had wonderful teachers who truly care about her academic success. The teachers at Oak Hill go over and beyond their call of duty to ensure that each child gets what they need to meet the standards. If there was a problem with my daughter in any area, I was always notified immediately, in a professional manner, to help my daughter. I am an involved parent who believes that parent-teacher-student communication/network ensures a student's success. Kudos to Oak Hill's teachers, school administrators, faculty and parents who care!

My daughter started at Oak Hill this year, so far the only thing i am impressed with is her teacher, Mrs. Lear. I have never seen a better teacher. Her love for her students is unbelieveable... My daughter loves her, I couldn't have hoped for a better teacher for her. The office staff and a few others i have met at the school are quite rude more often than not... A few are unwilling to help the children they are supposed to be there to help. After all i have seen my child will not be attending Oak Hill Elementary school next year if i can help it...

My daughter started at Oak Hill last year and I have to say that I am very pleased with the ease that she had in the transition from a different state. Oak Hill really does care about the students and they have excellent teachers that really care about their students. I have to stay that you have a rare gem of a teacher in Ms. Schurr! Ms. Schurr went above what I expected and helped tutor my daughter in areas that she needed extra help. I recommend Oak Hill highly. My family look forward to the next school year. Keep up the good work

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.

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.
