Disappointing. As a parent my child had great success and results last year at a different school. Unfortunately, this school falls short. The teachers do not have time for one on one with their students, the staff is extremely rude and trying to get someone to call you back is near impossible. If you're a parent and you're thinking about sending your child here, you owe it to them to look into any of the nearby private schools for a proper education with more caring staff.

I love SES! Class sizes are about 18 children per class and the teachers are excellent. I like that the teachers are here for the long haul, not transient. The administration strives to give each child the best education possible and works to find solutions for any arising challenge. We've had great communication between our family, teachers, and administration. My child LOVES the cafeteria's lunches! In a county in which the majority receive free or reduced lunch, the lunches provided are nutritious and filling. Some of the meals are good home cooking like my mom or grandmother would've made. The only weakness I've seen is the lack of parental involvement. An APT exists but very few parents attend. Most of the APT meetings are attended by the board members, school personnel and, at most, 2-3 parents.

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.
