Message About Student Achivement

This year our students and faculty will be “Earning Our Stripes.”  We are so excited to begin another wonderful year at Grady.   

Over the summer, we received fantastic news about the learning environment at Grady  and we want to share with you.

Out of 154 Hillsborough County elementary schools taking the Stanford-10 Student Achievement Test (“SAT-10”), our first graders at Grady Elementary placed 1st in both the English and Math portions of the test.  Our second graders placed 6th in the county on both the English and Math portions of the test.  

With regard to the Florida Standards Assessment Test (“FSA”), our third graders placed 15th of 154 elementary schools in the county on the Reading and Writing portion of the test, and tied for 5th place on the Math portion of the test.  Our fourth graders tied for 6th in the county for Reading and Writing and placed 3rd on the Math portion of the test.  Our fifth graders tied for 4th place in Reading and Writing and tied for 6th place on the Math portion of the test.  Our fifth grade also took the FSA Science test and scored in 6th place.

The overall result of these scores puts our school in second place for raw FSA scores in the entire Hillsborough County School District and first among all South Tampa (Area 1) schools.  We are so proud of the superb parents, teachers and students at Grady Elementary.
