Small school that offers the kids many opportunities for growth and development.

Great School! My son loves this school. The entire staff are wonderful too. I was nervous about the adjustment from Elementary School to Middle School and so was my son but within the first week he was totally comfortable and he's made a lot of friends.

My child loves this school! The teachers really do care about the students. A very safe and happy environment for all! I'm so glad and thankful I transfered my daughter to GVM. She has made many many friends and the administration embelishes the positive behavior initiative.

Gulfview is an excellent school for grades 6-8. I know many parents who pulled their children from private schools to go to Gulfview, which is public. Gulfview's administration is supportive of the excellent teachers, students, support staff and even the parents. Recently, afterschool athletics were added. The students seem very prepared to make the move to high school after attending this school. Gulfview also has a rich tradition of former students choosing to send their children to here. My children are actually the 3rd generation of our family to attend.

I attended GVMS during the 2001-2002 school year. I loved it! I would recommend anyone who wants a school where education comes first, the teachers really care, and the students are kind and compassionate, that they attend this school!! It is an experience I definitely won't forget, nor would I want to. I grew up among no friends, mean kids who tortured me, and teachers who did nothing about it. This school is like a dream come true for someone like me.

'My son went to GVMS for 2 years. GVMS is a school where the child comes first. Our child was encouraged to do their personal best without being labeled. The teachers are highly skilled and work hard to bring out the best in each child. The principal is kind and knows each child by name, because he often supervises the lunch room himself. He is a great example of a leader, and I would encourage every parent to meet him. Thank you GVMS for bringing out the best in my child and giving him the encouragement and confidence they need to go out into the world! '

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.
