Pensacola Beach Elementary School is the southernmost school in Escambia County, and certainly the most unique. For almost thirty years we have educated students in our elevated school among the sand dunes. With only one teacher per grade, we are not a very large school but we certainly get the most out of what we do have; a wonderful location, a top-rate staff, caring parents, and enthusiastic children. Our enrollment ranges between 120 and 140 students. All elementary-school age children on Pensacola Beach are eligible to attend PBES.
Pensacola Beach Elementary School consistently scores high on state and district assessments. Our goal is for all students to show a year’s worth of growth in all core subjects. In addition, Pensacola Beach Elementary challenges their students to make more than a year’s worth of growth in all core subjects as well. The staff recognizes the critical need for the lower performing students to obtain a proficiency level in math, reading, writing and science.
