My kids and I love this school, their teachers are very involved, they care about the students, specially my little one in K who is a "barbarian" and has a hard time getting used to new things. His teacher took her time and had a special way to deal with him, now he just loves everything there. the staff is very friendly, the principal gives the parents all attention necessary...I just feel the parents need to be more involved with the PTA. Our experience is being just great.

My child has been 2 years at this school, K and 1st grade, and it was a good experience overall. The staff, specially the office staff is very friendly and helpful. We loved our childs teacher, she is a role model for all teachers.

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.
