I have twin daughters in the advanced Kindergarten class, and I think this school is wonderful. Communication between the school/teachers and parents is so fluid, it's sometimes can be a bit much. Also, I was surprised by how challenging my daughters' homework is, even though I worried that they should skip Kindergarten at the beginning of the year since they already knew how to read, write, and count to 100. The principal and administration is highly visible and accessible. Choice of extracurriculars could be better, but they continue to add more choices. My daughters use current technology in their classes and learn through different media (video, print, computer games, hands-on). I think NBAE is doing a great job with these students, and I look forward to continued improvements in the coming years.

I'm glad the previous proster, who claims they were a former teacher here, didn't teach MY child! Great grammar ("to" kind, instead of "too" kind)! Most, if not all now, are certified teachers, just like in regular public schools. If they were so worried about charters being "union busters", why did they take the job here in the first place? This former teacher sounds very bitter. Maybe he/she was given the boot because he/she wasn't up to par of what NBAE really does require of it's teachers? We've been very happy here for years now, but this year has been the BEST. New Principal this year came from a public middle school and is doing a fabulous job! I know our child is either on par or ahead of her counterparts in Millenium and is actually LIKES school, so it true...what more can a parent ask?

As a former teacher Ill say that a 1 star is to kind. The administration doesnt support the teachers at all. Great union busters charter schools have become. This school is the leader. With an exceptionaly high turnover rate one wonders if the principal is smart enough to tell the difference between a great teacher and a bad one because so many have been pushed out the door. The classes are overcrowded. They exceed the public school mandate actually. The classes are loaded up with level 1 and 2 performers. The adm. has unqualified teachers instructing ese students.

What a difference a year makes from the last review seen here! Although communication still could use some improvement, everything else about the school is FABULOUS! Okay, so there's not a zillion extra-curricular activites to choose from, but there are some and they are adding more each year. Meanwhile, their focus on education is doing its job. With both the staff and the students happy, what more can a parent ask for? Thanks NBAE!

Communication with parents is poor. They don't seem organized. Office staff not friendly. Lunches are over-priced. No extra activies for the kids.

About the tests

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.

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.
