Both my children went to Terry Parker High School..and lucky for me they are at UNF..That school is a dissappointment to me.
—Submitted by a parent


Posted March 12, 2006

It was 'ok' when my daughter went there. She graduated in 2001. It had begun its decline then. The arts are a major concern to me. They recently shut down the band program at Arlington Middle, so now the only school feeding into TP is Fort Caroline Middle. The once top-rated Terry Parker Marching Braves will soon be a thing of the past. That will be a sad day for both the spirit ofthe school and the spirit of the community. Why can't the Duval County School Board do their job and manage our schools properly? That is what I want to know!

Landstown High School has the best teaching, administrative, and volunteer staff in the city. The students are also very accepting of eachothers differences, and it is the healthiest high school environment I have ever had the pleasure of being around. Excellent technology, art, music, and sports dept. Just look at all of the top notch sports teams coming out of this school. This is the best school in the city, plus its the newest, opened in 2000.

Lots of extracurricular activities. Quality of the building can be better. Class sizes average. A great diversity of students. Good honors program.

Parker is a good school relative to the rest of the schools in duval county. With one of the most diverse populations in the state it is a great life learning expirience by attending TPHS. With a school of over 2100 students there are only about 20-30 trouble makers which the administration does a good job of controlling. As far as schools in duval county it is one of the best.

Terry Parker High School has a grade from the State of Flordia that is a 'D'. Not impressive. Does the Board of Education not realize that these children are the future? Maybe the Board of Education and every teacher/parent should take a look at the No Child Left Behind Act a little bit closer,you may learn a thing or two.

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.

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.
