As a teacher at John Love, I am proud to be a member of the community at this school. Due to the hard work and dedication of all the staff and students, we improved our school grade from an F to a B in one year! I am confident that all stakeholders will continue to work hard to improve proficiency. John Love Elementary School is truly a great school!

My son is in Pre-k and i personally think the educators are just great!! They are always doing some type of continuing education workshop and my son truly amazes me when we recall his day. The staff and even the safety patrol students go above and beyond to ensure the student's safety! I love John Love and my son will be there until he goes to middle School.

This schools is VERY rough. From the administration all the way down the school needs a makeover. There is almost no parent involvement whatsoever. There is very liitle motivation for the students to work hard. Very negative attitudes by teachers and administration. Look at the grades for this school, and if possible, send your students elsewhere. Also...I don't know why this website says 800 + students, it is under 200 students.

I'm a parent of a child attending john love, and I can honestly say that,I 'm very impressed with the teaching methods and skills which are being taught to my child, this is his first year there as a 5th grader, and the school he attended previously was a great school the level that they were teaching there was very challenging and was preparing them for what was ahead of them in the future grades. so I was a little sceptable, thinking this school would not continue to challenge him at that level. But that was not the case. This school is very productive in teaching the broading the childrens mind to a level beyond what I thought It would be. Im glad i decided to put him in that school, he's learning a lot. Thanks to all the teachers and staff.

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.
