I love school here. The school is really a family here. There has never been a fight or much drama and I have never had a substitute in two years of going here.

I was a bit apprehensive about joining KWCA because I had a few friends going to KW High. I ended up making the right decision. I ended up meeting my two best friends here and really have gotten along with all of the kids and staff. I really feel I learned a ton last year and I am ready to back next year.

Excellent teachers with a strong principal/leadership. Offers Dual Enrollment so students can earn free college credits while in high school. The school seems steps ahead of the the alternative high school.

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.
