Pinedale has evolved in the past 3 years under new administration and there a notable difference in the total school environment. I applaud the Principal for her efforts in putting strategic procedures and policies in place to provide a safe and secure school environment for everyone. I can tell that the staff is more dedicated to teaching and helping the students in reading and math.

Pinedale really works hard at taking care of the Special Needs Population.
—Submitted by a teacher


Posted August 14, 2007

Pinedale has the most professional teachers who care and put forth 110% day after day. My child has had many teachers go out of there way to reach him. I feel as though I can always reach my childs teacher. The communication is strong. I know my child is getting a high quality education at Pinedale. Those teachers need a pay raise!

Pinedale teachers do not care about improving the students education. They do the bare minimun in order to help their students. Pinedale needs motivated teachers who care for the children.

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.
