Florida Standards in Mathematics. Florida Standards in English Language Arts. These standards were developed as part of a process of continuous improvement of our education system and to raise the bar for our schools, educators and students. For the 2014 – 2015 school year, all Florida schools have been teaching to these new Florida standards. Pinecrest Preparatory Academy has taken steps to ensure that our teachers have access to the latest instructional and assessment materials designed to effectively teach and assess students mastery of these new standards.
