I have watched my grandson's grades go from failing in Duval County to excelling at Keller Intermediate School. He faces learning difficulties, and gets frustrated easily. I would like to thank Keller for creating an environment where children are eager to learn. I also want to thank his teachers at Keller for a job well done!

This school is in the worst part of town....high drug activity. The staff does a great job of keeping the kids safe and they care about the children. However, the county needs to relocate this school, my children don't feel safe there.

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.
