I am very happy with this school! My daughter just completed her first year at this school as a 2nd grader. The administration makes an effort to know both students and parents that when I pass them in the halls they are familiar with my daughter and I. Her teacher was great and had no problems with communicating with parents if a parent had concerns with their child. Finally I loved the fact that the 2nd graders were able to experience all 4 performing arts subjects: dance, drama, music and art throughout the whole year so when they enter 3rd grade they are more aware of what magnet program they would like to join.

I transferred my three children to this school and it has gone beyond any expectations I had. The programs for the Arts are the best in the area. The level of education is excellent. The class size is perfect!. The Administration treats each child individually and truly cares. It should be looked at as an ideal way to run an educational facility. The security is outstanding at every level. The communication with parents is unbelievable. If I could I would give it 6 STARS! Not only are the children challanged scholastically, but they are able to express themselves artiscally through dance, art,drama, and music. The Arts Program allows the children an outlet they can not receive anywhere else and it shows through each child's enthusiasm. They actually enjoy school.

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.
