Parkland Schools Receive A Rating
According to the most recent FCAT ratings, the elementary and middle schools located in Parkland have received an A Rating. This means that Heron Heights Elementary School, Riverglades Elementary School, Park Trails Elementary School and Westglades Middle School have all earned the highest grade of ‘A’ from the Florida Department of Education in the 2010/11 school accountability results under the state’s A+ Plan.
School grade calculations are based on student performance as measured by the Florida Comprehensive Assessment Test (FCAT) in reading, mathematics, science and writing.
This honor is just another example of how why Parkland is such a great place to live and how important Parkland holds its children’s future. The A grades are even more important since they follow Forbes Magazine’s designation of the City of Parkland as the no. 1 Top Education Town where the median home price falls between $400k – $600k.
A huge shout out to to all our educators and school volunteers!
