This school is a great school, The teachers go over and above to make sure there kids are learning to the best of there ability and that they are happy. And its not just the teachers, The office staff including the principal who seems to know every one of her students seem to mesh so well together. Simply put, This is a great school !

great school ! the new principal just inforced the already established rules and safety codes that were way too laxed in the past. all children attending are much safer because of the enforced rules. the teachers really do their best and the principal genuinely loves her work and the children . we have been at this school with 3 kids 8 years total !!!!

This school is by far one of the best in the district.

With new principle, this school has gone down the tubes. This school no longer welcomes its parent -teacher relationship to focus on the childs needs. New saftey measures have put more children at risk. No longer has open door policy for parents to discuss issues with school all must be handled by set appointments which takes days. If your very involved with your child and their education this is not the school it use to be...

About the tests


In 2012-2013 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 writing in grades 4, 8 and 10. 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.
