I had two sons that attended the school; one was in 6th grade, the other in 8th grade. From my feeling there was not that much extracurricular activites, except the team up after schhol program which my sons enjoyed. My 6th grader had excellent teachers who were very interested in his education. I would go sit in on his classes every once in a while and they had no problem, they welcomed my being there. On the other hand, whenever I sat in on my 8th grader's classes, the teacher's seemed genuine but at times, they could not control the class with it being all boys. I did agree with the concept of boys and girls attending classes seperately.

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.
