Guess if you are a property owner and are also residing on marco your child will still have to be on a standby list. Wonder how many naples kids are in the school!

I would never recommend this school. My child came home crying about everyday because the whole faculty made her feel left out and unwanted. All faculty would stand around and talk bad about each and every one of the students unless they were picture perfect. And everyone knows nobody is perfect. The school and what they teach is fantastic but one of the main rules is to not distract them from learning. How can they learn with such poor and cruel faculty?

My family and I are new residents to Marco. We were blown away by the lack of professionalism we experienced with applying for my son to attend. My son struggles with his reading but is an amazing child. The school never contacted me to let me know if he was excepted. When I called I was told that my sons records had been glanced at and they didn't feel hr was a candidate. Seriously? I would never want me child to attend such a snobbish unprofessional environment where people feel a child that struggles isn't good enough for their school. So warning to parents be prepared for your child to be insulted.... As well as yourself. Also be prepared to experience unprofessional staff that do not even have enough respect to return a call!

For giving all 4 of our children the very best prep and experience for their Higher education. Marco Charter was and is more of an ' extended family' for our children with each and every teacher and employee acting as a positive role model and mentor. Care and concern are demonstrated daily. Wat to go Marco Eagles!!!

Middle school needs to offer more extra curricular for all students, not just the gifted athletes. All students should have an opportunity to play sports at the middle school level. It is a rare school in the 21st century who does not offer choices for all students who have a passion for sports and have no place to expend that energy or live out their passion. Often times those same children suffer from derogatory remarks from others who may have less passion for a game but more innate talent to win. For children of this age it should not necessarily be about winning as much as allowing all children to learn good sportsmanship.

One of the most beneficial schools around. The curriculum is fantastic and the faculty marvelous. They do an outstanding job of providing each student with individual care and attention.

This island community takes care of itself. If your child is motivated or average they will succeed, but don't rely on the administration for much help

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.
