Biltmore is an excellent school! My daughter attends kindergarten there and she loves school. She is currently reading on a second grade level. Her math skills are way beyond her years. I am so thankful that her teacher cares enough to create additional work assignments for her so that she may improve on her skills. I have walked the halls of the school and the teachers really adore the children.

My son started to fall behind in the 2003-2004 school year.(4th Grade). His teacher requested for him to be placed in ESE, so he wouldn't have to worry about the FCAT. When the request was brought to my attention, I refused to sign the request. With out my signature, the school could not put him in ESE. I sat down and had a long talk with my son about the problems. We agreed that he would try his best. My son took the FCAT Test and passed. He was one of 12 students who recieved a $50.00 Walmart gift card for top scores on the FCAT Test. He may have not done his best all through the year, but the test proves my child does not need to be placed in ESE. Talk with your child, before you decide anything concerning them. Your child knows if they need help.

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.
