My daughter is in 4th grade in Ms Jupa's. I cannot begin to say how amazing this school is! In the one year that my daughter has been there, she has learnt so much and reached all of her goals. My daughter comes home excited every day and cant wait to go back every morning. If you have a child struggling in school and hates going, send him/her to East Lake. This is not an exaggeration! You will be surprised just how i was at the level of care and determination the teachers here have. Its not just a job for them, they really do care, in every aspect of child development and learning. Im so thankful my daughter goes here. See you all next year East Lake and thank you for all you have done for my child.

I have had my 2 kids in this school since it opened and I am very pleased with the teachers and somewhat with the staff which has changed over the years. Preparation for fcat is adequate and I absolutely love the arts programs.

"Disgruntled parents." I'm not surprised that the previous review was written by a staff member. This parent is someone who is involved in their childs education. My opinion means something and I wouldn't take the time to write a review that wasn't true. My review was honest and simply speaks of my experiences, which is what a review is about. Say what you want. I stand by everything I said because it's true. I've experienced an "A" school and this isn't one. That's MY opinion. Based on ACTUAL events with my children. I have documentation of everything I have to say and am happy to forward it to the school board. My children aren't the problem, this school is. I took time with my kids to prepare them for FCAT because they weren't getting what they needed here. They both received 3.5 & 4's on their scores. I thank my kids and myself. NO credit to this school for that. My child that received all 4's is graded as a C/D student according to this school. When prior to coming there she was at a TOP rated (higer than East Lake, based on scores) & was an HONOR Roll student. Myself and my childred are counting down the days left before school is out and we move to a better school district!!

East Lake Elementary is a great school, despite what some parents may feel. East Lake has some of the best teachers, along with a great Principal and Assistant Principal. The achievements and accomplishments the students at East Lake make are astounding. The educational level of the students is on or above the required standards. Nothing is wrong with the school or staff...it might just be disgruntled parents.

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.
