14 schools recognized as Five Star Schools by the FLDOE

This year, we had 14 schools recognized by the Florida Department of Education as “Five Star Schools”.

The Five Star School Award was created by the Commissioner's Community Involvement Council and is presented annually to those schools that have shown evidence of exemplary community involvement. In order to earn Five Star School recognition, a school must show documentation that it has achieved 100% of the established criteria in the following categories: business partnerships, family involvement, volunteerism, student community service, and school advisory councils. Schools must also earn a grade of "C" or above, or school improvement rating of "maintaining or improving" for the year of nomination. Here’s a list of our recognized schools.
