I am very disappointed with this school! I had a bad feeling about sending my child to this school in the first place. My child is a straight A student and well behave. I have NEVER EVER had any complaints about my child. A few weeks ago my child came home crying because she was being bullied in school. I had a teacher/parent and principal meeting the very next morning. I was told they would have a talk with bullies and straighten every thing out. Instead, that same day the principal send my daughter to detention and made her write a letter stating she will not lie again. Once again, my daughter came home crying...I went back to the school the next day to find out why this had happened. The principal refuse to see me and will not return my calls.

This school used to be in my opinion one of the best but is not as parent friendly as it once was. They did opt to keep the music program which was great! The music teacher here is quite dedicated to these kids and they are participating in the Cathedral Arts program. There is not as much parent information available from the front office and you no longer feel welcomed as you once did before when visiting the school. The teachers are great here and care about the kids and focus on the FCAT curriculum and test taking skills. The teachers go above and beyond for the kids at this school but I am not so sure that they have a good support staff. There is the Merrill Lynch tutoring program here which is great for many of the kids.

This school is excellent! Although it is not very large, it has a wonderful princibal, dedicated teachers, and it is one of the only schools that has a band program which has a variety of instruments and is free. The four years that my daughter has been going here, she has greatly enjoyed it. One negative is that the PTA is not very large.

About the tests


In 2012-2013 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 writing in grades 4, 8 and 10. 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.
