My kids feel safe, happy, and learn a lot! Their teachers communicate with me daily and I see the principals every time I was in the school. Everyone is always smiling and really cares for my kids. This is a great school.

This school has amazning principals, Aps, and teachers. They really care about the children. The reviews from before (2010 to 2007) was a old, horrible principal who is no longer there.

I have been a teacher at Hogan-Spring Glen for the past 7 years. Yes, we went through some rough times - but, our current administration is wonderful! We are very student friendly - looking to help every child succeed. Helping Student Grow Everyday is our goal. Our school grade is a C - but our scores are moving higher - most school grades are not what they seem due to "Safe School" policy - I am very happy to work here! We are creating LEADERS!

I have been a volunteer coordinator at Hogan for the past 3 1/2 years. We have seen some amazing changes and all for good! It is very exciting to see the progress. However It is also under new leadership. There are very negative comments on this review and no reference to the changes that have taken place. This site should be updated periodically to prevent confusion as to the current status of the school. If I had a child eligible for elementary school, I would be proud to have them attend Hogan.

My son's school is attentive, helpful and striving to assist each student to succeed. The teachers are friendly and treat my son as if he is a member of their family.

My child was blessed to be placed in Mrs. Meadow's class (with Mrs. Love). They have done a wonderful job teaching my daughter. The Principle is a joke. She is almost never there. The ladies in the front office are very welcoming and sweet. I agree that the car riders drop off/pick up is a big problem. That is mostly due to rude parents that don't follow the rules though and have zero consideration for other parents. I have a child entering kindergarten next year and one going into first grade but I enrolled them into a charter school down the road. Until that principle is replaced - that school will not flourish.

I wish they would get together ..The school year is almostr over and we are still having trouble with car riders , dropping off and picking up are still a big problem .. If you have more than one kid at more than one school you are never on time . Tre whole system needs a overhaul..

My son has been at this school for 2 years. I absolutly love this school the teachers are great the activities are great. I have nothing bad to say about hogan spring glen and my son will continue to go to this school as long as he can. As a parent i worry about my sons well being at all times and with him going to this school i can feel secure that my son is ok and safe. He has good techers and staff around him they all comunicate well with me as a parent and do everything they can for the children in this school. The one thing that i think can be done is that the parents step up and take responsibility at home for there childrens success. It is not all the schools responsibility it is ours as parents to tech the same. Lacey whittington

Having had a child in Hogan Spring Glen for the past two years, we were very excited for our second child to be starting this year. HSG has some of the most wonderful caring teachers and support staff around! Unfortunately, with the change in leadership at the beginning of the year (new principal) all of that excitement turned to remorse. The principal s attitude toward teachers, staff, students and parents has been less than respectful. Volunteers have been made to feel they are not needed or wanted. The principle has gone so far as to ban people from volunteering until she was corrected by her boss. What was once a wonderful community school has turned into a place that neither students nor teachers want to be. We are pulling our children out and will find an alternative solution.

As a parent of 3 children who have attended Hogan I am saddened to say that I have had to watch the demise of what was once a wonderful school.I have been made to feel like an outsider and unwelcome by the principal herself.I have also received no assistance or 'guidance' from the guidance counselor.I have witnessed the morale of the teachers plummet,parent volunteers diminish and children's education suffer.It saddens me that those in a position to make a change before the damage is irreversible have turned a blind eye.We have already lost many great teachers and families that have been at the school generations..including my own.Something needs to be done before the few teachers left are pushed away as well.

My oldest child graduated from this school 2 years ago and just made Junior National Honor Society in 7th grade at an academically talented magnet school. Needless to say, she had great teachers at Hogan. My second child should have been graduating from this school this year but due to the Principal we got this year, I had to move him on 'Special Assignment' to another school. This school was the best with great teachers and staff. It is a shame what a bad principal can do to a school and the lack of help from the school district. The Extracurricular activities have been cut and parent involvement is minimal due to the principal chasing people off. This was once a great school. How times have changed!

Time certainly changes things! We are having a very bad year since we have been assigned a new principal. Communication is non-existant at this school. Thank God the teachers are good or the children would really be suffering.

My daughter is gaduating this year from Hogan-Spring Glen. My son also graduated from this school. I am thankful my children had this school as their elementary education. I am thankfull for the kind, welcome and always helpfull teachers and staff that was always avaliable to us. This has been a great experience.

I have two children at Hogan and could not ask for a better school. They are kind and loving and provide an excellent educational environment. The teachers have gone out of their way to help my children become great readers and future leaders. They host Reading and Math festivals that my children love to attend. They send a newsletter home each week to let parents know what is going on and always welcome a parent to drop in anytime. I will be a little sad when my last little one has to graduate as I know no other school will ever compare to this one.

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.
