DELAURA IS AN "A" SCHOOL - 1st in County For Traditional Middle Schools!
Dear Parents, Guardians and Caregivers,
I am proud to announce that DeLaura Middle School was once again rated an "A" by the Florida Department of Education. We saw HUGE academic gains across a variety of categories which is a testament to the hard work of our students, teachers, staff and families. When you already have such a high performing school like DeLaura, it is tough to make additional gains but we found a way to do it!
A few of the FDOE school grade highlights include:
We are ranked #1 out of the traditional middle and Jr/Sr. High schools in the county based on total percentage of possible points earned (Not including Westshore and Edgewood which are schools of choice)
3% increase in ELA proficiency levels
5% increase in ELA Learning gains school-wide
14% increase in ELA Learning gains for our lowest 25% of struggling students - This was the highest out of any middle or Jr/Sr High school in the county!
3% increase in Math proficiency levels
5% increase in Math Learning gains school-wide
5% increase in Civics EOC proficiency
#1 ranked in Science out of traditional middle schools
We were ranked #1 or #2 in EVERY academic subject category for traditional middle and Jr/Sr. High Schools
I want to thank all of our teachers, school staff, students, parents, and the community members for their hard work each day. We are already preparing for the 2019-2020 school year and finding more ways to make our students even better than they already are!
