Surfside Elementary School, Satellite Beach, Florida

Surfside Elementary is nestled in the quiet beachside community of Satellite Beach, Florida. From the moment visitors step onto the campus, they are aware of the inviting, family-like environment that makes Surfside so special. The school campus is quaint and open in its layout and encompasses many green spaces. All members of the school family work together to make Surfside a place where children love to learn and grow, parents feel safe in entrusting their most precious cargo, and teachers and administrators work diligently to make sure that each child receives an abundance of meaningful experiences. Surfside strongly believes in building positive relationships and that students perform well because of these relationships. This year, Surfside earned an "A" for the eleventh consecutive year in a row. It was recognized as fourth in Brevard County elementary schools and 23rd out of 1,809 elementary schools in the State of Florida, based on FCAT results. These results are a testament to the dedication of the entire Surfside family. You can't hide that Panther Pride!
