Big Pine Academy earns designation as a 2017-2018 Florida School of Excellence!

Florida Statutes Section 1003.631 requires the State Board of Education to designate a school as a School of Excellence if the school's percentage of possible points earned in its school grade calculation is in the 80th percentile of higher for schools comprised of the same grade groupings (elementary, middle, high and combination) for a least two of the last three school years. Big Pine Academy was able to earn this designation as an elementary school by receiving an "A" grade in the most recent school years (2015-16, 2016-17 and 2017-18) and have a rank at the 80th percentile or higher for their school type for at least two of the last three years. 

Congrats to the staff, teachers, students, and families of BPA for earning this distinction!
