Lakeside Academy was awarded an 'A' rating by the FL Dept. of Education. Not only that, which by itself is quite an achievement for a school in western palm Beach County, but it also met AYP. The dedication of the school's administration is incredible and they are to be held in high esteem for their leadership and perseverance under the most trying of circumstances.

My children transferred to Lakeside Academy from a local elementary school. They were not A students, and they had some attention and discipline issues as well. But those are not reasons why they were not given the care and attention that they needed. Since coming to Lakeside, the discipline issues have disappeared and their school work improved big time. The Principal at Lakeside is always available to all parents, and so are the teachers. The school is run with care and love, and the students are given all chances to express themselves instead of being held down by 'discipline'. School should be a fun place to go to learn!

Lakeside Academy was one of the most poorly run schools I have ever seen. There was terrible administration and severe disorganization. I highly recommend students to attend any school before choosing Lakeside Academy. There was no extracurricular activities for the students. The executive director barely attended and students with major discipline problems were never given attention, leaving the other students to suffer. This school was and will always be a disgrace.

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.
