I love that the student-teacher ratio is so much lower than other schools. Also the teachers are more experienced than in other high schools. Extra-curricular activities have more variety, as well. Eager to send our kids there after doing our research. Also, less school violence.

There is more than enough extracurricular activities, but not enough parent involvement. Motivation and discipline needs to be instilled in the students starting at the home level. I see the administration and teachers as well as all staff day after day going above and beyond the call of duty trying to reach the students in their academics,as well as their personal lives where they see trouble right around the corner. I believe that the quality of academic programs is on an attainable level for students and they certainly are tested to see what their levels are.The teachers are very qualified and most are extremely motivated. Discipline is fair and handed out according to the infraction. I for one, am proud of Lake Placid High School in Lake Placid Florida even though we are considered a RURAL, MIGRANT COMMUNITY we have a lot of students who go on to become great citizens and businessmen/women.

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.
