Navy Point Elementary My grandson attended Navy Point for first grade and his grades showed an immediate improvement from the school (Myrtle Grove) he had attended the last two years! I am thrilled at his teacher's willingness to take that little extra time to insure he understood al his assignments. Ms. Peterson was wonderful!

We have worked hard to improve our school and it shows! We went from being low ranking to the top. We have the best staff and students in Pensacola, FL!

Navy Point Elementary is a place of love and encouragement. The administration, support staff and teachers make up a great team of people who are not only genuinely gifted and skilled but understand that each child is unique and wonderful in his or her own way and each has their own story waiting to be written.

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.
