I had the opportunity to visit my grandson's class and was very impressed by the effort made to make each student not only welcome but encouraged to learn and stretch their minds.

I am concerned about some of the core values that may be missing from this school. I have witnessed a teacher 'yelling' at students, which builds a 'wall' around the learning process that should remain open. Teachers should use positive reinforcement to create and maintain kind and caring environments for all students. Teachers should not 'talk down' or 'belittle' the children in front of others. Granted, I understand that there is much dissention amongst the teachers and administration w/in this county (due to salary issues), but please leave the negative attitudes and less-than stellar actions out of the classroom. I hope someone can add some positive experiences - so I can gain some sense of comfort for enrolling my child at LPE.

Last year started off very stressful for my daugter, I was confussed as to why this was going on. The Guidance councellor and Principal heard my concerns and stepped in right away to handle the problem. There was some children that needed more attention for discipline and was distracting the others in the class. I became at ease when I saw the support the teacher was recieving from the school. My husband and I are very pleased with the wonderful attentiveness and interest the school staff has to the childrens happiness while getting the best education they can recieve. What could of been a very terrible year full of bad memories for my daughter, had been a very good year full of laughter and great memories as kids should have. Congratulations to this school for the compassion that they show and thier hard work. Parents, please get involved!

I think the teachers are wonderful and the principal is very involved but the school's dicipline and safety is a factor that isn't up to par.

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.
