The kidsat this school are very bad and rude. The teachers are also rude they talk to the kids any way, you have some good teachers but they are not notice. My experience with dillard elementary has been terrible. My kids have been bullied and the principle has not done anything about it. I have been out to that school multiple times complaining and it goes unheard. My kids have been beaten nose bloody teacher push my child down and nothing is done about it. Its bothers me that the school allow kids to bully other kids. Something needs to be done about this school because its not safe.

I honestly dont think this isone of the best schools...I substituted there several times,..and the students were very bad. Of course the students are not a direct representation of the whole school,..but i really didn't get a good vibe from the administration..

The teachers at Dillard really care about the students. They go above the norm to provide a quality education.

Dillard elementary is a diamond in the rough. Having gone from a triple 'd' school as rated by Florida's fcat to a 'triple a' under the direction of Dr. Patricia Dixon, broward county's principal of the year 2004. Under new and inexperienced leadership we only pray that dillard continues to shine as it should. Proving that a poor inner city school can thrive under the right leadership!

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.
