The teachers seem to work hard, but there is no leadership in that office. Discipline is not handled in the office so teachers can't teach or help other students because they are left to do it all alone. It's time to change who runs that school, right now it's the kids.

I think this school is over crowded. My son attended 1 year. He is learning diabled and has ADHD. I was told they could accomodate my child 3 months before he entered this school. He did terrible having 37 students in his class. That was 37-1 teacher....terrible. Needless to say my son just barely got by.

Until the district has the insight to see that our schools are in desperate need of repair and that their failing system of 'limited choice' needs to be overhauled, St. Lucie County will continue to be known as one of the worst districts in an already failing state. One of the first steps that needs to be taken is implenting neighborhood schools with the option for students of a lower socioeconomic status to enroll in our good magnet schools. Until St. Lucie County does this not only will our children be robbed of an adequate education, our economy will also continue to suffer because companies do not want to come to a community where the work force is poorly educated and not well prepared to meet their standards.

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.
