JEWISH ACADEMY OF ORLANDO INCREASES RECESS by 125%

This year, Jewish Academy of Orlando extended recess for all grades to 45 minutes, which for some students is an increase of 125% from the 2017-18 school year. In addition to extended recess time, lunch for all grades was increased to 30 minutes, and a mid-morning break of 15 minutes was included in the daily schedule.

Jewish Academy of Orlando students score two and three grade levels ahead of their peers compared to national norms.

For the fourth straight year, on average, students at Jewish Academy of Orlando performed at least two grade levels ahead of their peers nationwide. Each April, Jewish Academy students take the Iowa Test of Basic Skills, a nationally standardized achievement test for K-12 students. The test allows schools to compare students’ scores to national norms in Reading, Language Arts, Mathematics, Social Studies and Science.
