This is the best elementary school in Escambia County Florida. The Director and staff at this school are just great. They really do care about your child/children. The Director goes above and beyond to help anyone in need. She is honest and fair and maintains an atmoshpere of excellence. You can't go wrong by choosing this school. It is my prayer that this school along with it's Director, Staff,Students, and Parents continue to excel to higher heights.

Jacqueline Harris Prepartory Academy, along with Adoring Addition and Adorable Tots are schools of excellence! From the beginning toddler age to the graduating fifth grader, your child's learning is accelerated. The entire school , from the director to the entire school staff, believes in your child no matter where their learning curve is before entering the halls of JHPA. There are no challenges too great when both parents and children are willing to learn and uphold the standards this school expects. Hats off to all - administration, faculty and the students (the real winners of our future)!

Many of the teachers are willing to extend themselves to make sure that students learn. My child's teacher informed me when my child did well and shared with me things that I could do to help him be successful. Students get extra FCAT help along with what happens in their classooms.

About the tests


In 2012-2013 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 writing in grades 4, 8 and 10. 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.
