I really like this school. I read some reviews about being test driven school. I don't see any problem in that. After all we want our kids to excel in studies. When my kid was in second grade thier class arranged world holiday theme . What a great way to learn about different cultures. I am not a stay home Mom but my kids are still doing good. Thanks to all the teachers and staff. I am happy that we picked Pride elementary school for my children.

Pride became an A rated school largely due to the numerous stay at home moms who were willing to roll up their sleeves and help. What a shame that the principal chooses to not allow moms with toddlers to help in the school. Pride was once a wonderful school and will be again... I am going to hang on through the year, then, like many others, I will move on if need be.

Attended a pre-k meetiing. Very impressed. They treated us how a school should treat a parent concerned with their kid's first year.

Pride Elementary is a great school. Even though is very new, the teachers are wonderful. My son had some trouble at the beginning of the year with reading and the teachers and counselor were very cooperative!

Parent involvement is huge in this school. The academics are pushed greatly and the kids follow accordingly.

This school only focuses on the bonus administration will get from the scores. No on seems to realize they are teaching young children, not adults. No one would give a tour of the school, and children arent given any social time. By far, the leasting rewarding school we have ever attended. Dont go here! Also, 43 children in one fourth grade class - just a little bit too much!

I have been very dissappointed with Pride Elementary School. I was looking for a warm and nuturing environment for my children. The philosophies are very 'test' driven. There focus is on maximizing instructional time. There is no recess and very little time given to the children to socialize. It took a long time for my son to meet new friends after we made the move from California. I must say, however, most of the teachers are wonderful and very dedicated men and women. My issues really is with the Administration. I feel like the school is run like a business and not like a school. Test results are all important.

The teacher ratio for kindergarden is higher then where I come from. They also would not give us a tour of the school.

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.
