I just graduated from Glades central and it is a good school. Most of the teachers relly care about the students. Its the students that need to care more about themselves. Thier are lots of extra activities for the students thier its just a matter of the students inrolling themselves into them.

I think that glades central is a good school only if the kids could work more with the teachers and parents.They need to focus on academics more all tear long instant of waiting to the end of the year to want to have an parent conference with the teachers when the damage is already done.Parents need to be more involve when it comes to the fcat and focus on graduation and prepare for our kids future!

Glades Central High school is an awesome school although I believe that the academic programs are somewhat limited to the children then that of what other schools have; such as the IB program and very limited AP classes for my children who are very academically accelerated then most. I also believe that the sports is more highy praised then the academics.

I think that the kids have a very growing learning atmosphere but the kids get what they want to out of it. They choose the level of education they want.

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.
