My daughter scored a 5 in math & a 5 in reading in the 3rd grade FCAT .. They're doing something right here !! Or is it just our parenting skills ..

This school has a serious problem with communicating to parents. At one hand you receive countless automated calls of needless information and on the other, you can never speak to the principal or vice principle easily. The 'gifted' teacher misses school way too often. Not extracurricular activities. Children are bored there and are thus susceptiple to disciplinary problems.

Seeing the reviews below it seems this school is a 'hit or miss'. My nieces went to this school about 10 years ago and it was 'excellent' back then. My son started 2nd Grade this year at CDW and the last 5 months have been a nightmare. My son has dealt with a bully since the start of the school year and no brought it to my attention until he had a blow out. I am not happy with the tactics used, and there is a great lack of stimulating activities, after school activities, organization and communication. And last but not least, My son's class had a field trip, but only 25 kids were selected to go and 5 were to stay since it was a 'free trip'. The kids were told that 'the selection was done fairly'. 5 kids were left out from the field trip! Not a good motivational message for the kids! Sorry I definitely don't agree.

My daughter currently attends this school. They have language programs such as Italian. Her teacher Ms. Nicholeau is a great teacher. My daughter has been an honoroll student since she started in this school, her test scores are always above average, so they are teaching her well..No complaints.

My daughter started 2nd grade this year at this school. She did not know how to read yet was passed from grade to greade for 'trying hard'. The teacher she got in this school, Mrs. Reyes, is awesome. My daughter can read now. She went from a D to a high C in reading in just one semester. This teacher is tough but she really cares. I have no complaints at all about this school.

I dislike the fact that this school does not have after school activities such as dance for the students etc. This should be fixed! my opinion as a parent. Thank you for listening.

I currently have my son at Charles D Wyche and I have no complaints of it. His teacher for this school year has been the greatest. MS. McCarthy deserves to be awarded the teacher of the year!

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.
