My kid attends kdg here and it's very disorganized, teacher expects parents to go online to give child schoolwork, kids are put in lunchroom and expected to know where to go at classtime, again kdgs who are mixed in with much older/larger kids during mealtimes. Open house was a disaster, no relevent info given on your kid's progress, just watching a 15 short movie on reading a report card, very poor school, some teachers are kind, most are just plugging along wating until they can retire...

terrible...from the very first day my child attended it has been miserable, one problem after another...no help from anyone...no one seems to know what another is doing...the teacher yells at the students, there is no "play time" (this is kindergarten mind you), and the teacher called my child ugly in front of all the other students after making a point to call others handsome and beautiful! Needless to say, my child will not be returning to this school!

Unfortunately I cant say I rate the school 5 stars... this is my daughters first yr there, shes a first grader. The second day of school my daughter was misplaced or not found as they call it.. the security of the school is ridiculously poor, to bad there is no way I could transfer her to another school due to the zone requirement. this makes my days shakey. I would not recommend this school to anyone at all.

I went to Snively when I was in Elementary School (1991-1998) (Pre-K to 6th grade). It was the best years of my life. The teachers and administrators were amazing.

This school is an older school, but the school is filled with teachers and administration who truly care! Both of my girls are enrolled at Snively and I love it. I only wish more parents would be involved!

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.
