Viewed the school when me and my husband were decided to move to the area, thought some of the teachers taught mediocre. The schools halls were dirty. Decided to give it a chance sent my child for two weeks, Withdrew after the second week. The education is not up to par with what it should be.

My child transferred to LHS last spring. I feel the staff and administration here are great. The care about the students and push them to succeed, no regrets in the decision to send my child to LHS.

About the tests

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.
