My daughter has attended this school from kindergarten through 5th grade, and I have been EXTREMELY satisfied with all of her teachers. MACS teachers make learning engaging and staff are willing to do whatever it takes to help struggling students. MACS involves the parents and the community in education. This school has great school lunches, helpful staff, and teachers that are always willing to talk to parents about any questions or concerns they may have. I will miss MACS next year as my daughter advances to middle school, and I would highly recommend it to another parent.

Teachers can teach their own children. Some boundaries are not clear. Teacher quality is declining.

Exceptional education. Great student teacher ratio. Safe. PE every day. Great teachers. Outstanding art teacher and 2-4th grade teachers and aides. Fantastic lunches and free before school care. Have had 3 children through and found it better than the private schools they had. Totally prepared them for Middle School and beyond. Couldn't get a better rating.

WE HAVE LOVED MACS SINCE THEY BEGAN! KEEP UP THE GOOD WORK! WOULD LOVE LESS HOMEWORK, THOUGH. 3-4 HOURS A NITE FOR 2ND GRADERS REALLY AFFECTS QUALITY FAMILY TIME. SOMETHING TO THINK ABOUT.....

A small town school with big plans and big expectations for the kids, Micanopy Area Charter School is truly a community center for education

Our granddaughters are new to the school this year. We are satisfied with how they have adjusted. Mosquitoes at lunch and at recess are quite troublesome.

My oldest child has attented Macs for 4 years ans I believed with the student teacher ratio he recieves the one on one attention needed. Macs also encourages parents to be involved in the school by volunteer work. I do believe they should be better discipline action taken when needed. Other than that I find Macs a very safe and well qualified school. My son enjoys learning and loves the Facilty. Thanks to the Teachers putting alot of effort into teaching my son is an honor student.

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.
