This is my last year here at Fort McCoy and I have to say that I will miss it soo much. A lot of the staff there are really really nice. I love everthing about this school. I may not get the best of grades there or be the most popular but I love the school anyways. It is the best school I have gone to in my 14 years. Even when I get super super sick I get sad that I can't be there. So that is all I really have to say about Fort McCoy. I reccimend this school to anyone.. =]

I have the highest respest for all the personnal I have come in contact with during the years my children have gone to Fort MCCoy school. Both have learning problems and I feel the school has gone over and above in providing them with good learning skills and a positive attitude. I commend them all.

I feel Fort Mccoy school is a great school.The teachers seem to be dedicated to the students and parents with trying to help overcome learning obsticals that some children may suffer from. I feel this school is wonderful with their dicipline rules. I can tell my daughter really respects the rules because she knows there will be diciplined if she does not obey the rules.

I dont think this school cares enough about their students or have enough parent conference. I also believe that a parent should be notified if his or her student is failing. By doing this the parent and teacher and try to find out why and what can be done about this instead of finding out in a report card mailed at the end of the year. Also the child might have problems in reading and should be in special classes instead of taken out for their school to score a better grade.

Ft. McCoy offers so much for their students' academic success. The teachers and administrators go above and beyond for their students!

About the tests

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 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.
