Scott Lake is an excellent school. I have two kids, one who graduated from Scott Lake and one in the second grade. My experience has been that the teachers really take the time to educate the kids and pay attention to their needs. I would recommend this school to anyone with a small child.

scott lake elementary school has a very good montessori program. the teacher student ratio is very good. my only thing is the two grades in one classroom; because of the age difference i think each grade should be in a seperate class.

Scott Lake can be awesome. However, it's going to take major changes at the top (local) in order to get that school focused.

This school is at its worst this year in all aspects and areas. The teachers, as well as administration, don't have a clue as to what's going on. I can't wait for my son to graduate in June, and get out of that circus!!

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.
