This school is good the teachers really cares about the welfare of your child the only negative thing i see they just need to be remodel inside and outside and also so they need to have somewhere to put the students when they are waiting to come inside the school instead of the parking lot.

The quality of academic programs are second to none. The teachers are committed to our kids and are devoted to their school. They reach out to their kids with great success. My son loves his teachers and his principal. Their art program is great and students win awards! Their after school program is great and everyone enjoys attending every day. They have an open door policy and you can always check up on your child at any given time. Their student services and guidance departments really are caring and supportive. The Parent Leadership Program is a great source of help for my child and me. De Hostos you are the best!

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.
