The principal and teachers really care about the education of each child. Parents are involved in the school which helps in the child's learning process from PK through 5th grade.

I think S.P. Livingston is a pretty good school even though this is my child`s first year. I haven`t heard anything bad about the school at all.

I do have a child that attends this school. They are really trying, so I do feel for the teachers! I could not do their jobs. At the same time, I think there are teachers that are not trying too really 'reach' the children the way they need to be reached. As far as maintaining them and at the same time trying to teach them. I feel they are doing a pretty all right job. Thank you to all those who really try.

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.
