they need to weed out the teachers that don't have the children best interest at heart. However I can say this year I did see some new faces that care about the education of the children .

This year is the first year my children(ages: 8 and 6) attended this school; and I love it! My son and daughter are excelling because the teachers, administrators, and principal really care. They take the time to really TEACH and take notice of what the children may be missing and provide extra help. The Arts program is wonderful and the recital this past weekend was AMAZING!Everyone has become like family to me and I would recommend this school to everyone.

My child really has learned alot while at Wayman, i truly like the smaller class sizes. This allows the teacher to give special attention to every student. As far as parent involvement, I always to my part. I hope all parents do. I wanna thank the staff and the principal for making this an enjoyable year for my child.

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.
