The staff at this school truly care about the students success. They have many challenges in the immediately community but handle it well.

My daughter has been there for three years, and thus far i have had no complaints with safty issues, all the teachers are very friendly. There afterschool program teachers are very good with her and seem to have a personal relationship whith all the students. I in the beining had wanted her to go elswhere because of the schools grading and the fact that she is a minority in all her classes being caucasion, but overall she has advanced in her learning which is the most important thing. One thing that is frustrating to attend school events and announcements is that they are twice as long and hard to hear because there is always a translator speaking along with someone else so all ethnics can understand. My daughter loves it there.

My daughter is in 2nd grade at GTE, and been there since kindergarten. For the most part I can not complain about this school, I feel academically they are a good school and definatly challenge my daughter to do well. However, I am not impressed with the issues I have had with the office and the support staff that works in the office.

This school is a poorly performing school for the last 3 out of 4 years. It has failed 2 years in a row under No Child Left Behind. It has some great teachers, they just face many daunting tasks, including teaching English to kids that come in not knowing how to speak it.

I personally don't care for this school. The kids are at a great risk of not reaching their full potential in this environment because a large majority of the teachers just aren't with it.

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.
