My child has attended this school for 2 years, and I have been very pleased with her progress. She has had the same teacher for 1st and 2nd grade, Ms. Willis. Ms. Willis is a very attentive, caring, motivating, and dedicated teacher. The school has a great parent interactive system to get parents involved in every way. I have recieved calls from her teacher, principle, and superintendant to keep me abreast of what's going on with the school and my child. I have never experienced that before! It shows me that everyone, from bus driver to the school board genuinely cares about every student. I love Crawfordville Elementary!

Most teachers are caring and give the kids a good push. Some what dissapointed in the lack of teaching reading to the 1st grade last year and that could be a result to why they were ranked as a 'B' school this year instead of an 'A.'

Crawfordville Elementary School is awesome! I love the staff, the administration is wonderful and my children are learning and happy! Crawfordville excites children about learning, and they focus on the needs of the kids. My children are becoming better students, better friends, and they are learning life lessons! My hat is off to everyone that is a part of that school!

Crawfordville Elementary school is a good school. My daughter loves it so much! She gets A B honor roll. What is so good is that they give out 6 report cards a year and gives out awards after each report card. This school makes the children feel important! The availability of music, art, library, and P.E. are always there. They have P.E. two days out of the week.I really like this school!

Crawfordville Schools in my opinion, are the best schools in the district. I had two chrildren graduate from the highschool. Both thank me all the time for moving them to Wakulla Cty. I have two more in school and both are honor students. My 13 yr old scored the highest GPA of the sixth grade. Both love school and are in advance classes. I don't feel there would be enought space for me to write all I need to about the schools in Wakulla Cty. You need to see for yourself!

I have 2 daughters that have went to this school and in the past year I have seen a marked difference in the leadership. I am not saying that this a bad school, not at all. My daughter that just left 5th grade is a straight 'A' student. I just feel that the focus has changed and believe that a lot of that is due to Florida and the FCAT. Seems that is all they focus on in any Florida school anymore. But my daughter enjoyed the school and I would recommend it to anyone sending their child to elementary school.

This is the second time my daughter has been enrolled in this school. She loves the class that she's in and I appreciate the teacher letting me know when she has peoblems. My daughter enjoys this school and I'm glad she'll spend her school life at a school that cares for her as well as my input.

I think they are too concerned with getting Title One funding from the federal government. The end result is that they are accelerating the curriculum for these young children way too fast just to increase the number of kids needing additional assistance. Kindergarteners and first graders are getting bogged down with so much homework the kids can't even enjoy school when it should be the most fun. Its ridiculous!

About the tests


In 2012-2013 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 writing in grades 4, 8 and 10. 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.
