School grades are out!

School grades are out! We’ve been poring through the list and it looks like our community’s schools stand among the best in the district. Congratulations to Binks Forest Elementary, Discovery Key Elementary, Elbridge Gale Elementary, Equestrian Trails Elementary, Loxahatchee Groves Elementary, New Horizons Elementary, Panther Run Elementary, Wellington Elementary, Crestwood Middle, Emerald Cove Middle, Osceola Creek Middle, Polo Park Middle, Wellington Landings Middle, Western Pines Middle, and Wellington High School for making “A” grades!

School grades don’t mean everything, but you should be proud of the students, teachers, support staff, and parents for working hard and getting results where it counts. Some of our other favorite schools maintained their “A” grades again; Suncoast, Park Vista, and Dryfoos School of the Arts.

Palm Beach Central, Royal Palm Beach High, and Seminole Ridge all dropped a letter, but that can happen as the state raises the bar from year to year to promote continuous improvement. It’s not easy for the kids.

If you’re concerned about improving standardized test performance, we can help. Also, some students share with us the concern that too much of the core curriculum is being placed on the back burner in order to make time for standardized test preparations. Unfortunately, this may be a fact of life. Let us provide supplemental tutoring support for your students to make sure they are competitive and prepared for university level work. Our tutors are certified and experienced. Don’t forget to ask about our programs for PSAT, SAT, ACT, and Advanced Placement® tests. High scores on these tests can make a big difference on college applications. Start early! Enjoy the Independence Day Holidays!
