It used to be a good school, but in the past several year has gone down rapidly. The teachers don't truly care about the students. The students have become numbers instead of names. The administrative staff is the same. I am very disappointed in this school.

My son hated school before we moved here. He never wanted to go and begged to stay home. This year because of the kind teachers and staff he couldn't wait to go each and every morning. This school makes learning fun!

The faculty and staff at Read-Pattillo Elementary are the most dedicated, hard-working and caring people I know. It may not be the largest, newest, prettiest school in town but it's the best in any contest!

There is no tolerance for children who do not behave at all times.

Read Pattillo is an A+ school. They have a great art program as well as music. There are quite a few excellent teachers. There is alot of parent involvement and school pride.

Read-Pattillo is a wonderful school. The teachers are committed to teaching the children and are extremely proficient at teaching each child at their level. This versatility is extremely important because it enables any child that is behind to get additional attention and, at the same time, advanced children can be challenged. The Art and Music teachers are wonderful and the principal is second to none. Unfortunately the parent involvement is slim to none. The PTA encourages involvement and tries to hold many events to increase the parents participation. I am the parent of a 4th grader and will be very sad when my child leaves this school.

I'm a mother of 3 grown children and one 5 year old who is getting ready for kindergarten. All of my grown children (in their twenty's with their own children) went to Read-Pattillo. They loved the school when the went. I also liked the school. I volunteered on several occasions. The teachers at Read-Pattillo a very dedicated to the children and the school. Their is much school spirit. That is why I've chosen to send my 5 year old to the same school that my grown children have attended - because of the teacher dedication and the level of academics and extracurricular activities. I also like the inter-racial mixture. I think this is a great school.

Every teacher my son has had (since Kindegarten) has been so involved with each student's personal needs. They communicate with parents and are helpful with activities you can do at home that will help your comprehend what is going on in class. They teach the children to be responsible and accountable for their own actions. Just want to say thank you to all the staff at Read-Patillo. It's as if they're one big family. From students to teachers, to adminstrators down to office personnel, janitors and volunteers: they all work together to better the student body and the school as a whole! Read Patillo Elementary shines!

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.
