    Academic Profile of a Successful Student

     The Pre-Advanced International Certificate of Education (Pre-AICE) program at Pinellas Park Middle School is an academically rigorous program in which students participate in advanced or accelerated math, science, social studies or language arts courses. In addition, students in this program participate in required elective courses which may include technology, world language, or the arts. Students who typically do well in this program earn mostly As and Bs on their report cards, maintaining a 3.0 average and earn a level 3 or higher on their FSA mathematics and language arts assessments. Students new to Pinellas County Schools who do not have an FSA score, can look at their standardized test scores from their previous school to determine if they have at least a 5 stanine or a percentile rank of 42 or higher in both reading/language arts and mathematics.

    Once enrolled in the program, students must attend all classes regularly, maintain a C average in each class for each semester as well as abide by the Code of Student Conduct. Falling below these expectations may result in placement on probation and/or dismissal from the program. Please review the District Application Program Procedures available on the Pinellas County Schools website for further information.
