Each year, public schools in Florida receive a school grade of A, B, C, D or F based primarily upon achievement data from the Florida Comprehensive Achievement Test, or FCAT. School grades indicate how well a school is performing based on state standards. For elementary the grades are based entirely on FCAT results. Middle school grades include algebra test results. High School grades are not released until the fall. Heron Heights Elementary, Park Trails Elementary, Riverglades Elementary and Westglades Middle School all received an “A” grade. Since 2008, the existing schools have received an “A” rating. Heron Heights started classes in 2010 and like the other public schools in Parkland, has received “A” grades. "We are ecstatic to have such high student achievement," Parkland Mayor Michael Udine said. Congratulations to everyone involved in the success of the schools!
