My experience for all this years been with the St Lucie county they have for mission to ensure all students graduate from safe and caring schools, equipped with the knowledge, skills, and desire to succeed. In partnership with parents and community, they have become premier centers of knowledge that are organized around students and the work provided to them. Their name will be synonymous with the continuous improvement of student achievement and the success of each individual. They have promised to move from good to great focusing on their core business, the creation of challenging, engaging and satisfying work for each child, every day. This is the St. Lucie Way!

I’ve been apart of the st Lucie county, since the 1st grade. I moved to Port Saint Lucie from Broward County when I was 5 years old and pursued all my education here. I can say that I came along some magnificent teachers who helped me reach and become the person I am today. I’ve also volunteered at the school that I am currently in and received great attention and help to achieve the hours that I needed in completion. St Lucie county is a place where all schools are united and are set to bring the best education and services to the students so that our next generation can be as brilliant as can be.
The standardized testing that they use to make us frequently do wasn’t good, I feel like the grades that one gets on their test, doesn’t genuinely reflect the student that they are. Like myself I am a bad test taker, but the grades I got on those test didn’t match up with the great quality of work I turn in now. I don’t think the people that work at the district are truly involved or know the students and the environment as well as the teachers do. We have amazing field trips at the end of the year, I’ve always felt safe within their schools. Not to mention the amazing teachers they have working at the schools, these teachers really make sure that staudents are understanding the material in class, in a fun no pressure way, which is why I think we have high test scores. They offer good academic programs that simultaneously help one prep for college workload. And the food can be improved greatly.
