Teachers are awesome, but aren't able to express their teaching skills..too many new rules put on by the principle. The principal should be reevaluated! shes not fit to be there! Children aren't being treated like little adults like they should. Instead they feel condemned to scolding, bullying, and not fit subs destroying their innocent outlook on school. Not the ideal school to send any of my children. Horrible and hope others will move their kids out of that deplorable atmosphere!

The school is not concerned about the education of children with special needs.

My child attended Lake Stevens for 3 years and I can say that school is wonderful! Every teacher he had was dedicated and took interest in their students, they gave individual attention and pushed for the best. Parent teacher communication plays a big role in your childs success in school and I'm grateful that all of his teachers took the time keep me informed at all times . I also liked that the curriculum included a second language class along with art and music. Everyone from the cafeteria to the office staff had a great attitude; nothing but the best. We really miss that school. We moved and it's been about a year now. To the parents of Lake Stevens appreciate the school and teachers because good ones are hard to find.

I have had three children in this school and found an incredibly dedicated staff and administration. The office staff are friendly and helpful. The education my children received was quite good and teachers really take an interest in their futures. My only complaint (and it's small) was the communication of events and awards programs was very late - sometimes the day before so I couldn't get off of work in time.

I think that Lake Stevens is one of the best schools around it has some of the best teachers and staff.Best Principal and Ass't Principal. It has the reading program in Dade County, the children are encouraged to read at least 30 minutes everyday after school. Another thing the Principal is concern about all the children at the school, she has given things aways such book bags, uniforms,bicycle. The teachers are working hard with the childrens. The school was graded higher this year.

About the tests


In 2012-2013 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 writing in grades 4, 8 and 10. 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.
