We currently have a student in the third grade in the ESOL program as a result of his family's job transfer from Puerto Rico to Jax. Compounded by the fact that the child started later than the other students and that he had limited enlish. My husband, family and friends, as well as, myself, are very impressed with the english that he has thus far been able to dominate. His ESOL teacher is passionate and truly cares about her students progress and the quality of her lesson plans. As a volunteer in her class and in the homeroom, I notice that more teachers are needed and more assistance in the classrooms. The classes definately have too many students. Other than that, my hats are off to all that I have come in contact with at Neptune Beach Elementary.

Neptune Beach is a really great school. Their PTA just won PTA of the year for the second year in a row. They do many great things for the school and are very involved. There are great teachers at this school. Even though there are 1000 students at this school if you spend anytime there at all you would see that everyone seems to know everyone else. Also, the Principal is great and she is very involved with her teachers, knows the students and the parents.

My daughter has attended NBE for 3 years. Every year just gets better. It is a wonderful feeling to know my child is safe and cared for everyday she walks into the school. Thank you so much NBE.

My son has been going to NBE for 3 years and loves every teacher he has had there. We asked him if he would be interested in switching to a school closer to home but he doesn't want to change. He's has had straight A's so we won't be moving him.

My children have attened Neptune Beach Elementary for 2 years. The teacher/parent relationship is excelent. My youngest was struggling, and her second grade teacher guided me to help and support thoughout the school year. My oldest's teacher was also very supportive in making sure she was 'making the grade'. All the teachers I have come in contact with work far and beyond what they have to do. Thank you NBE Judy Miller

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.
