We have recently moved to the area. My daughter started the 7th grade here and I must say this school is fabulous! It is such a refreshing change compared to where we came from. The teachers and staff are very friendly and the atmosphere is very welcoming. I am very impressed by Shoal River. My daughter, for the first time since she started school, actually looks forward to going to school everyday. So very glad we moved here!

What a great first week of middle school my 6th grader had at SRMS. The school held a "survival school" for 6th graders the Friday before school started-they met all their teachers, went through their schedule, were issued their lockers and got help with the combinations. My son felt relieved they he learned where to go when. He was also happen to find out everyonw who goes out for football makes the team!! What a wonderful confidence builder for all of our children. (Yes- girls can also be on the team!!!)

I am a teacher at SRMS. I have also taught at Richbourg, Choctaw & Bruner schools in our school district. AS a military wife I have taught in Imperial Beach,CA (Navty Seal Camp), Corpus Christi, TX-advanced Naval flight training, San Diego, Ca (PAciic Fleet base). So i have had many years of teaching "military students". Our new military students who relocated here with the 7th ARMY SPECIAL FORCES have brought a great amount of maturity. common sense and good school habits. WELCOME 7th ARMY - WE ARE GLAD YOUR CHILDREN ARE IN OUR SCHOOL.

Shoal River is a great school! I've loved every minute I've spent there. The teacher and staff are phenomenal! I would definitely recommend them as the best middle school in Crestview for your child to learn at!

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.
