My son has attended this school in the past and the administration and staff worked very well with the parents. The staff was attentive to the child's educational needs and had no problem talking with parents when they called. We are considering moving back to this area because our experience this school in the past was so good.

I think it is a great school, however I think that they could use some work on the math and reading area, and not embarrass the students, I think they do very well in the science, social study, history area.

I have went to this school for 3 years and I am now leaving to go to the high school next door and I just really want to say: Thank you C.H Price and all of the teachers! I could not ask for a better school! The people that work at this school do every thing they can to make it the best. I love C.H Price and I'm going to miss going there a lot! Miss. Church rocks! She has done so much for our media center and she's a real friend to all us kids! I would have never made it threw becoming a teen with out her. I hate to see the other people bash our school because I really just love this school and I think you have to go to the school to know what it's really like. Were small town but we dream big! Lauren

Although the teachers are qualified, and the administrators do the best they can, the school does not promote higher learning. Homework is a thing of the past for this school. Many of the tests are open book. Because the parents of this school do not want excellence, the teachers are limited.

Sixth grade students should be in an elementary school setting. Maturity level dictates this thought that 6th graders are not ready to change classes and be subjected to the hardness of middle school. All parents should be involved. The after-school program suffers.

Price Middle School provides a quality learning experience to a diverse student population. Children at Price Middle School are given opportunities to engage in top learning experiences daily. Children are not only seen as individuals, they are worked with in small group and individual settings during the school day and in after school programs. The teachers and administration have a committment to after school activities, found no where else in the county. Students stay after school for everything from tutoring to flag football. Throughout the school diversity is respected and students 'fit in'. Thanks for providing a safe, quality public school environment for students.

I believe that C H Price has maintained adequate progress for students from grade to grade. We did not meet NCLB due to one subgroup. This means that all the other subgroups within the school made adquate yearly progress according to the Federal Government Guidelines. One of the main issues for the faculty and staff at the school is the high percentage of absenteeism. I wish that parents understood that if a student does not attend school regularly and has a high rate of absenteeism they are not prepared to take the FCAT & do not perform well on the test. This affects the entire school.When you have a large percentage of any particular subgroup with high absentee rates,that subgroup as a whole will not perform well and therefore, will not meet the NCLB Guidelines. Let's get the kids in 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.

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.
