I think this is a terrible school. I have seen teachers yelling at students. I have seen teachers using unacceptable discipline. I think the principal should be fired because she doesn't care about the students or parents comfort or concern just maintaining a facade to look like a decent school. There is no help for the children and no room for advancement. Also teachers threatening students that they will fail FCAT and be held back to scary children into higher FCAT scores. Something should be done but no one will help!

I out of zoned my kids for Ventura because this school is very hard headed!! Meaning, the teachers have an excuse everytime for not getting back to you in the agendas, never return phone calls and one of the pre k assistants gave my daughter an attitude for some reason... Also, during Fcat, I picked my daughter up early from school, when I looked at the TV in the office I noticed it said "Shhhhhh (Quite) there is Fcat testing.... when I pointed out to not 1, not 2 but 3 office attendants that it said quite, not QUIET they had no idea why I was laughing... they all sat there n didn't know a 2nd grader word was spelled wrong!! Wow!! Good thing my kids don't have ADULTS like that to teach them!

Boggy Creek Elementary is an outstanding school with dedicated Principal, Assistant Principal, teachers and staff members!


Posted June 8, 2011

My children attended this school since Pre-K. We have had nothing but problems!.Teachers do not return parents calls,answer notes in agendas and do not send your excused absence form to attendance they stay in the folders for weeks!.They are very unhelpful even the Asst Principle and to get a meeting with the Principle is extrememly hard!.My child was retained twice and they never did anything to help us with having him tested ect or providing ideas to help him.If you put your children in this school and they struggle or have any extra help they need THINK TWICE!!They will not help your child!!!

Parents are not allowed in the classrooms without a meeting. Tardy kids get picked up by other students in the office. I understand the need for child independence, but not at the expense of the parents comfortability. It hard enough to trust strangers with our children.

Most teachers care about students, but some office staff need to relate better with parents and students. Much help provided for students who need it through after school programs and tutoring.

Boggy Creek Elementary is a school where students come first. The teachers truly care about there students. Lessons are created for individual students on their own level to make sure that grade level expectations are met.

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.
