This is most terrible school I have EVER been in. The teachers were very un-helpful and didn't frankly care if you learned or not. They just cared if they got paid which is NOT a good thing. I attended this school for a year, and my FCAT scores went STRAIGHT DOWN due to me not learning ANYTHING at this lame excuse of a school. I'm sorry but this school has too many fights, and wild children who are ruining education. I have left this school and I'm attending a much better one. -Jenifer V L

Ms. Gail Alexander is a great teacher, in fact i got into a great magnet program in south Miami senior high school. sadly i do not attend this school because it is to far from where i live. But overall im proud to be a mustang! -Erika D Rodriguez

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.
