Buckhorn Elementary Celebrates Success

July 26, 2017

Buckhorn Elementary Principal, Tamara Brooks, and staff made surprise visits to 70 students who scored a 5 on their FSA testing (Florida’s K-12 assessment system). Mrs. Brooks' first stop was to recent 5th grade graduate, Ellie Redmond's house. Ellie was a School Choice student at Buckhorn Elementary where she scored a 5 on her English Language Arts FSA Test. Aside from her academic excellence, Ellie is also active with extra-curricular activities, including chorus and the Buckhorn Running Club. She will be attending Mulrennan Middle School this upcoming school year.

"We are excited to celebrate the academic successes of our students at Buckhorn. If we can highlight their accomplishments in their community and give them a sense of pride, it motivates the entire student body to excel," said Mrs. Brooks.

Buckhorn Elementary, located in Valrico, improved their testing scores 40 points overall, increasing their school grade from a "B" to an "A" in 2017.
