Schwettman has been a Godsend for me. they have given my son every opportunity available. The teachers can only do so much, the child has to be willing to participate also. My son chose not to. There is noone to blame but hisself. It is easier for parents to blame educators and others for the choices their kids make. I was giving unbelievable amounts of support from all the teachers and staff there. I think it is an awesome school and we are lucky to have it in our community. There are some kids who do want to work to change their lives and for those who do where would they be without schwettman??

This school was a disaster for my son. Poor adherence to state curriculum and miscoding of his classes left him with many unfinished courses to finish in summer school. Administrators have great difficulty with admitting mishandling of students and have blatantly lied to me. Covering up mistakes takes precedence over student welfare. Not recommended.

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.
