My granddaughter has had a great year in Ms. Straight's Montessori Kindergarten class. This teacher is very loving and caring, and even tries to go to each birthday party she is invited to! (sorry for the dangling participle!) My granddaughter has learned a lot this year and has grown socially as well. Ms. Straight does a wonderful job of communicating with the family, which we appreciate so much. We feel very fortunate for winning the teacher-lottery this year!

The montessori program is outstanding. My children love their teachers and it shows in their grades. We were very lucky to have found this choice program.

Our son was in prek 4 this year, with teachers Mrs Logsdon and Mrs Landfair, in the Montessori program. We love this school! Our son starts the gifted Kindergarten at Palm Beach Public in about one month, and while we are glad to have him in a school that is just two minutes from our house, we will miss the wonderful, caring and talented staff!

This will be our first year at the choice Montessori program. We are very excited and my child loves it. I would suggest checking out the program, I think you will be very impressed. I do like that the PTA is very active and the principal is alway's walking around. My other child is in the VPK and is loving it. Seems to have very good teachers.

My son is in the ESE program as he is PDD-NOS. This is his second year (he's 4) and the teachers have been fabulous. We have seen such an improvement in his language and social skills. Everyone at DD Eisenhower is caring and supportive.

This is a great school. My kids went here from K - 6th grade. Yes, it has 6th grade. Only elementary school around that still has 6th grade there. Because this school has a smaller population the atmosphere is more like a family. The teacher are also very caring and top quality. My son was very hyper and it takes a very special teacher to be able to control that without medications. All of his teachers works with us to keep him in control and he has turned into a very responsible middle schooler at this time. The only negative associated with this school would be that it feeds into Howell Watson Middle School. My advise is to send your kids to school at Eisenhower and then move to allow your child to go to Jupiter Middle School.

This is a school that has been around for many years. In the past five to six years the school administration changed to one who cares for the welfare of the children. Many of the teachers are outstanding and should be rewarded for the work they do by going beyond what is expected of them.

Although a small and old school, I find that this is one of the best schools my son has attended. Teachers are very understanding, patient and willing to work with students. Safety was never a concern and the afterschool program was a fun place for my son.

This is a very loving school that has so many teachers that give their all for the children. They really do care and do all that they can to help the students learn.

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.
