I am student in the graduating class of 2010 and i must say that my experience at this school has changed my life for the better and it is one of the best high schools a parent can allow their child to attend.

This school is awesome. We have excellent group of teachers. I love this school. Students are very focused and really smart. They are very nice and reliable. We have tech programs that are very different.

There are many highly qualified instructors. and the facility's are fairly adequate in terms of technology and resources (books) yet not fully adequate. It is good for small atmosphere, but the extracurriculars are lacking, and the only serious one is robotics. Also the leadership isnt fully there, ultimately if your into small friendly schools then this place is great, but for more AP and intermural options choose to go private or the BCC collage academy is another good option.

Great school! I wish they would allow sports, but the tech classes really give us an edge in learning and most of the teachers are great!

The high school is relatively small with about 200 students per grade level resulting in smaller class sizes. My 9th grade son cannot get 'lost' in this environment. Faculty and staff know all the kids and so they are engaged they stay connected. Teacher quality is excellent. My highy gifted son stays challenged most of the time. Highly recommended for academics. Need a little work on transportation for extracurricular activities, in process.

I love my school! We have such a small campus, that we all know each other. The diversity is also wonderful. I recommend it to anyone! We have a program for anyone.

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.
