This school is not the best school to put your little ones in. As a parent and with my oldest being there for 3 years I have had nothing but issues. When we 1st moved here my kid was let off his by herself in kindergarten. The 2nd year of school I had a teacher keep something from me that ws illegal by law the teacher has to tell what she knew or report to authorities and that didn't happen. This year my daughter has a disrespectful teacher who talks to me the parent like garbage. I wonder how she speaks to my daughter without me around. Also I was having a baby this year and had to keep kids out of school because I was stuck in another county for a week I got a call from the principal threatening to take me to court and take my kids away followed by charges of neglect if they missed 1 more day of school without a doctors note. I had no choice to keep them out of school. Yesterday the teacher confronted me at parent pick up because my daughters grade went down and said we need to bring her grade up because I don't not want the school board asking me about her grade and why it dropped the way it did and than she proceeded and slammed my car door in my face.

Nocatee has recently begun making many changes for the better. We are working hard to become a welcoming place for our wonderful students; a place they want to be and are proud of, so they are motivated to succeed.

About the tests


In 2013-2014 Florida used the Florida Comprehensive Assessment Test (FCAT 2.0) to test students in grades 3 through 10 in reading, 3 through 8 in math, in grades 5 and 8 in science, and in grades 4, 8, and 10 in writing. The FCAT 2.0 is a standards-based test, which means it measures how well students are mastering specific skills defined for each grade by the state of Florida. The FCAT 2.0 has 5 achievement levels, with level 1 being the lowest and level 5 the highest. Florida considers scores of level 3 and higher to be on or above grade level. The goal is for all students to score at or above level 3.

About the tests


Florida uses School Grades to measure the overall performance of a school each year on the Florida Comprehensive Assessment Test (FCAT). Each school is assigned a letter grade (A-F) based on three criteria: the overall performance on the FCAT, the percentage of eligible students who took the test, and whether or not students made progress in reading and math. The School Grades are calculated by adding points earned from each of the performance criteria listed above.
