Bluewater earns another A!

Bluewater Elementary has earned an A rating from the Florida Department of Education. 

FLDOE has graded schools on an A-F scale since 1999, offering parents, teachers, students and taxpayers a simple and effective way to see how well their schools are doing. This year's school grades were calculated using more rigorous standards and higher achievement levels. As a result, only 43% of elementary and middle schools in the state of Florida earned an A rating, compared to 58% last year. Bluewater Elementary continues to rise to the challenge of meeting more rigorous standards for educating our students.
