Maybe the others were paid to highly rate this school, but they are not being honest. If looked, wholly, and critiqued even in the kindest light, the only saving grace of Eagle Lake Elementary is the Principal, but that's about where it ends. The teachers are inadequate and seemingly uneducated themselves. My son complained that one teacher in particular would sit on her cell phone DURING CLASS (subject matter not at all related to work/school). Other teachers would send home graded papers and reports which had undeniably WRONG information, but checked off and approved as being correct (I want my child to have good grades, but not to be mislead in thinking the wrong things are right). There were nice folks in the office working there, but as far as what your child will get out of this school? It wasn't promising for my son who had gone there since he was five, with every year, hoping that his next teacher would be better, and wanting to believe the school wasn't as low-graded as I've read (they're a C-rated school).

I have two children who have attended Eagle Lake Elementary and one that will attend in a few years. The adminstration and teachers are great and work hard to give each child the best opportunities to succeed. My oldest child will be going to middle school next year, and I know he will do well because of the education he has received at Eagle Lake. This is truly a wonderful school.

Top notch school! Teachers and Administration were great throughout my sons 6 years of being there! Wish it went through 12th grade! Special thanks to Ms. Robb, Ms. Lance and Ms. Rivers. Florida's finest teachers!

Surprisingly, a very well-kept school (grounds, classrooms, hallways, etc.), and a top-notch administration. The teachers (my son is a kindergartener there) are absolutely wonderful, and encourage the fundamentals of learning. My husband & I are constantly impressed & amazed at how disciplined & organized this school has been. The ambiance is great, and everyone seems to have a can-do attitude.

I have three children and all have attended Eagle Lake Elementary. My daughter is now nineteen and still recalls all the wonderful times she had. My youngest is 10 and I truly thank the wonderful teachers like Mrs. Moore and Mrs. Shrader, Mrs. Raub who were patient with him and worked so hard to teach an unwanting child. He has grown so much and I believe this year with the team of Rivers, Chatron and Murphy he will be ready for all those state tests he has yet to take. Thank you to all of the great staff. Eagle Lake is truly a five star school.

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.
