This school only wants to help the kids that go there to better themselves. It doesn't matter if you're super poor or super rich, they just want you to come to school, do your work, earn your diploma, and plan for the future. All the support from the staff and faculty makes it possible to be successful.

Here at Mavericks we all have a singular goal of helping our students achieve success and plan for their futures. We hold two graduations a year and since our opening we've had 70 students graduate who all have a common statement: They couldn't have graduated without Mavericks. Now it's not Mavericks that makes them successful, it's the students giving Mavericks a chance to help them become successful! To our new graduating class of Winter 2010: Congratulations!

This school was a life saver for my child. He was having problems was public school teachers and seemed to be falling through the cracks. This school he has THRIVED at. He has made tremendous progress in all areas of his life in general besides his school work. He said that the biggest reason for this is he fells like they care which I have found to be true after talking to some of their staff, IT WORKS AND HAS CHANGED MY SONS AND MINE TOO.

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.
