The school is great! The teachers are excellent, the environment is very kid-friendly and the students get along. My only complaint is that the school asks for money every few days, so you'd better have your wallets at hand.

Great school and curriculum with excellent teachers. However, Christmas show was not classy due to the coaches skits in between performances. They appeared low class and a bit embarrassing; very inappropriate for a holiday show.

GREAT SCHOOL! I have two sons in this school and I have been impressed with the rigor of the academics, as well as the dedication of the teachers! This school has a private school feeling due to the size and discipline. Everyone knows you and your children and the teachers genuinely care. This was their first year and it went almost flawlessly. Looking forward to what next year will bring! Highly recommended!

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.
