Hello :) Both my children go to this school, and my opinion is, is that this is a wonderful school. I volunteer here, and work with the teachers, principal, and other staff as well. I know there is a lot of attention given to the students education. I (me and my family - were military) have been to a few different states(and schools), and a couple different schools in the Escambia school district here, and have found by personal experience, that this school (staff) is caring, and are very motivated to help the students get a good education. But, it would be nice to have more parent involvement in the school. My kids love their school :) When you first walk in the building, and go to the office, you will be greeted by some wonderful ladies, who will help you right away :) Go Tigers ! Sincerely, Wendy Brunelle

Love this school. This is my son's first year there and he loves it. He had a lot of problems at his other school. He had a hard time keeping up with there teaching styles. His teacher here at Myrtle Grove has been so patient with him. He has been on the honor roll all year, so far.

This is my son's first year in school. He was not very happy about going to school when he first started, but his teacher was so patient and really made things easy for the both of us. The staff is great. My only complaint is the lack of physical activity the kids are involved in. I do think this is a state wide problem not for just this school. Overall I would give it an A+.

I am a grandparent of a student at Myrtle Grove. I am so proud to see the parental involvement in the school. PTA's are well attended and on the Friday of lunch attendance there were well over 200 family members present to share lunches with their children. This is a show of what a great school you have when you have parents who want to be involved with their children's education. My granddaughter is in her first year of school and her teacher is Miss Nikki. She is a joy to work with and her love of teaching shows in the patience and kindness that she gives each of her students. If all your staff are as caring as this young lady our children are in great hands. Early education is so important and knowing she is being instructed by someone who cares is very comforting.

This is our first year @ Myrtle Grove. I have a 1st & 4th grader. We had moved from out of state and found it pretty easy for our kids to adjust. They have a friendly staff. If I were to have any complaints it would be the exessive P.E. they have and the fact they don't have a normal recess.

My 7 year old daughter is in the first grade and has been at Myrtle Grove Elementary since starting school and she loves it! They have a great staff and are very involved with the kids, after Hurricane Ivan my daughters teacher called all of her students to make sure that they were all okay...she really cares about them! We love you Mrs. Lazauskas!

I have a 6 year old daughter in this school and she has ADHD. The Principal has been great at trying to get her all of the help she needs. The teacher on the other, hand just wants to give her bad reports and send her to the office. She is not trying to help her at all. My daughter had the best Kindergarden teacher last year. She really brought her up from failing that year. If parents would get more involved in their childrens school, more parents would know what is going on. I love the school and all it has done for my daughter. But the teachers need more education on ADHD children, and how to deal with them.

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.
