The teachers are very loving and dedicated. Teachers seem stressed with the new assment and extra paperwork they have to do this year.

It was Good not until recently i realise that some student / teacher and even parents have "preference" on who they choose to be friend /be nice with. For very simple example ...a mother of my son's classmate, totally ignore my present eventhough I'm standing right infront of her! Students should educate on cultural differences as well as teachers/parent. and I have never seen a classroom that is as messy as my son. I wonder how could the child progress in sure a way.

The academic qualities are very good, but the level of extracurricular activities is low, mainly due to the fact that there is no playground.

Oakhurst Elementary is a very good school for students that fit in the middle-and- above of grade level expectations. I have found that several of my children recieved a good education here; however, one of my children that was behind grade level in certain areas was continually pushed through the system. My child was not allowed to repeat the grade and was continuously struggling until I removed him to homeschool. This school's focus mainly centers aroud the very bright students and it would seem that the teachers focus on the principal's expectations instead of the student.

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.
