I am very pleased with the school. Dr. Hernandez is great. She is a caring individual who shows that she cares daily. She walks around the grounds and welcomes parents with a smile.

E.W.F. Stirrup is an outstanding school. My daughter just graduated from 5th grade and it was a bittersweet moment. From the administration to the teachers, this school has it all. I know my daughter will take with her many beautiful memories that she will cherish. Her Gifted program lacked motivation and creativity, but the music program made her experience extra special. Put your children there, you won't regret it!

Stirrup is an outstanding school. The teachers, staff and administration truly care about the students.They have so many advanced programs in both academics and extra-curricular activiities. Both of my sons attended E.W.F. Stirrup Elementary. I cried when my son graduated from fifth grade because I knew he was loved by his teachers. My younger son is a special needs child and his inclusion teachers have been a blessing. He has come this far because of their motivation and dedication. I can't think of a better place to send your children.

I love Stirrup because my two daughters graduated from this school and my son is now finishing 5th grade there. I was always welcome by the past administrators and I am sure I am also welcome by the present administration as well as my child's teacher. Frequent communication with the teachers is the key to my child's success in school.

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.
