The grades for Florida’s public elementary and middle schools are in, and parents of who attend school in Wesley Chapel should be happy to know that almost all of our area’s schools met, or exceeded the county’s overall grade of a “B.” In fact, Pasco County as a whole received a grade of 520, just five points short of earning an “A.” New River Elementary was the only school in the Wesley Chapel area to drop to a “C” grade, although, principal Lynn Pabst remains confident that the school will rise back to an “A” or “B” next school year. “We’re going to focus on the students who need more attention,” said Pabst, “We’re making big changes and we are going to drive to the top.” Wesley Chapel’s elementary and middle school grades are listed below.
