What an awful year at this school!! I spent the entire year on the phone between lice, bullies, and a mean math teacher. Thank God I found them a better school for next Year!!

I have a 5th and 3rd grader and am sad that we moved out of the school boundaries for next year. I loved the school and aftercare was the best my children have ever been in.

I have two children in this school in 3rd and 4th grade and the their teachers are wonderful. Not only that but their homework actually challenges them and they have a lot of in-school field trips to enhance their learning.

My son spent half of 3rd grade @ this school & I had to pull him out. Also did not like that parents were not involved with the school!!

My children range in age from 8-14 so I have a lot of experience with Lantana Elem. I have been happy with the school until recently when yet another new principal came to Lantana Elem. I don't feel as though she is a strong leader nor do I think she has the rapport with the children that the previous principals had. There has been a lot of turnover in the principal area. The teachers are great. The school is a Beacon school so it has a lot to offer.

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.
