Great school to send your kids. Hard working and caring teachers/principlal works at the school. A place where your child comes first.

I find the school to be very encouraging. Teachers really care about the students. There are many teachers who are willing to stay after school and work with the kids on their own.

In the 2 years my child was at Oak Grove, I found the teachers to be very negative and the school to be very unorganized. I decided to remove my chilld from the school because I felt I wasn't getting anywhere.

I give this school one star, some of the staff are just plain rude, the school is failing academically, also very overcrowded. I'm transferring my child out.

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.
