"It means that our collaboration and efforts are working," Foster said. "We can see a difference because we were pulling together for better achievement of the students."

Foster received a copy of the school's grade breakdown, personalized by Gov. Rick Scott.

"A great thing about our school is we improved nine percent in reading skills, ranking 16 out of 439 schools in Florida on improved reading," Foster said. "Governor Scott circled it and wrote 'Great job.' I think this is worthy of framing."

In the school years ahead, Foster said she'd like to maintain reading performance and work on graduation rates and math performance. She credits teachers and students for making the high mark happen. Now that school is back in session, the only thing left to do is celebrate.

"Oh yes, we will make a big deal about it," Foster said. “We will decide together how to celebrate. We want it to mean the most to students because they are the winners."
