I just came back from a school program and it is very disheartening to hear the teachers themselves speaking to the students in Ebonics. There is a an overemphasis on FCAT preparation to the point where the students are not excited about learning. It's clear that the State of Florida is not delivering a high quality education to these children.

Outstanding teachers..Students are accepted into School of the Arts. Students win Art contests. Chorus and Drum line. Science Fair winners. Reading emphasized with motivational activities including reading counts. Parents participatein school advisory council.

From first hand experience I see the dedication of all school personnel to their profession and work. I also understand that with such diverse cultures it would be absoluely impossible to reach every child academically. I must state that each child is given the very best efforts on the part of school personnel. Because of time and pressures these days, the children are not given the time for art, music and club like times. When my child was in school they had pen pals and I always thought that was a great idea for them. I still do. Level of parent involvement? There isn't enough of that which is very sad. I am sure that is due to so many cultures within our community. I think that the parents don't realize the opportunities these children are given and they are not supportive. Thank you for this opportunity to be heard. Rita Yandrasevich

Our children were treated well at this school. The teachers seemed to really care about the kids. Academically, it did seem a bit slow for our children.

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.
