What can I say about this school. The school is amazing. The staff, teachers and the pta make my children's experience epic and unforgetable . The school is on a 135 acres and the students make trips to our nature preserve and learn hands on. They have a hydro ponic garden and grow fruits and vegtables, as well as a water ponic tank.The teachers are always avialable and staff is always polite. Children actually love to go to.school. The pta has a lot of events for family involvement such as All Pro Dads, Bingo for books, STEM night, Enchanted Forest, Strawberry Festival to name a few. For a school that is only 5 years old.it hhas won National, State and county awards as well as its teacher.

I loved this school with all my heart. They will help your children improve on everything, but they sometimes like to spoil your children. And one more thing this school every year its getting more ratchet as my son will say.

I love how PJES administration and faculty emphasize exceptional behavior among the students. Students are very engaged. My son is always looking forward to another at school. I have never heard a single complaint from him.

I have two sons who attend PJES and it is a great school. It is very clean and science oriented. The teachers have been been really good and enthusiastic. The electives wheel gives kids a chance to take several different classes. FCAT scores are really good for a Title I school, but the curriculum isn't just FCAT test prep like at many schools. My boys go on 4-5 field trips each year, and there are many events for the whole family like the Strawberry Festival, STEM night, Book Bingo night etc.

My daughters love this school. The teachers are wonderful, the school itself is amazing with all of the environmental aspects. My older daughter has been there since day one and will be in the first graduating fifth grade class. They have never complained about going to school and both are doing exceptionally well. We are so lucky to call this school ours!!

My son has been going to this school since inception. He LOVES it. By incorporating "go Green" into the curriculum, the children are learning a deeper appreciation for our Mother Earth. Reduce, Reuse, Recycle are common words used in our household. I highly recommend this school to anyone living within it's district. The teachers are wonderful!!

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.
