It has been a great pleasure for me to have my daughter in Kinloch Park! Great teachers and school staff! Thumbs up!

Great school, teachers are excellent doing their job and I mus say that if I had to choose a school I'd go back to Kinoch Park


Posted February 10, 2010

To start off, I attended kpms. The school is what a student makes of it, not where they come from. Excellent staff, not to mention the curriculum. Every student has a spot in this school. Now, the discipline is pretty much not the school's fault, students can be a handful.These days people think the school is bad when in reality the students are the one's with the issues.I attended kpms from 2004-2007 and I never had a problem with anyone. I excelled each grading period. When it came to eighth grade, I had good grades and was accepted into a great school for high school. I recommend kpms to any parent out there. If your child ever struggles with math in eighth grade, speak with Lourdes Geller. She's strict, but a very helpful teacher that's dedicated to teach the students that want to learn.

This is a nice school. The teachers in the gifted program are great and you know that you can count on them for anything! But the discipline in this school is not very good because most of the teachers dont care about teasing of the kids and the kids have no one else to go to. Also, the school is mostly ESOL and the kids who do not know spanish are made to feel 'out of the group' and are teased in spanish.

It is not that good because i think that the teachers are focusing to much on the kids that know alot and not on the kids who dont

Posted June 23, 2005

This is the best school i have been in. They have great teachers and they treat me very good. If any parent reads this make sure to put your child in this school you wont regret it! The kids in this school have trust in the teachers, that is how great the teachers are in this school. They would always have there arms open to any new kid that enters this school. and dont for get the principal she is a hard working person, she is always there for any one that needs her, and she is a great rollmodel to every one in the school and to all her family members!

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.
