I was held back in the 9th grade. I came here & caught up and graduated with a 3.7 GPA. The teachers actually care & if they discipline you- it's for your own benefit. I LOVE this school. C/O 2009

This school is the best. I have had trouble with 2 high schools in the area and after talking to the counselor here I enrolled my 2 they have surpassed my expectations ..They have gone from below average C D F to all A and B's. The kids are treated as indivuals the teachers take the time to teach a lot of one on one,the Principal is always around and accessable ready to talk when parents need to!! They treat the kids as individuals . My 7th grader is already planning on attending this school.

This school was the absolute best I've ever been to. The teachers and staff are very supportive and take time to work with everyone one on one. They care about you and try to make great bonds and relationships with their students. The principal is also great. He is an amazing and caring man. They all try their best to help ALL the students who are in need and who are willing to help themselves as well. Wonderful experience, wonderful school.

We do our best to keep our students in school, raise their GPA's and get them to graduate. I enjoy teaching at Richard Milburn and getting my students to believe in themselves. We are a school that cares about our students.

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.
