Honestly this school is an amazing place to attend. The academies there are excellent. Although some teachers are very racist against Hispanics. Attending this school gives you so many opportunities, for example not all schools offer the aerospace academy , other than that the teachers , especially the math ones, are super lousy most of them are hardly ever at school and the subs don't know anything so the students aren't learning anything two weeks at a time oakleaf is a great school with amazing people but it has to step up its game

Honestly Oakleaf High School is a JOKE. Honestly the teachers don't care about the students and if you're not a popular kid neither will the administration. The principal is a joke as well, he's very unfriendly and to be honest no one respects him here. If I were you I would find a better place for your children to go.

The programs and classes are good.More than half the teachers are not very good at teaching and helping kids understand the curriculum.Some teachers may yell at students if they don't comprehend what they are teaching and others will discipline for no reason.The curriculum they teach is not even helpful to the students here.I took my SAT and failed the first time because more than half of the stuff on the test i didn't understand.The principal is extremely strict.My mom liked him first when she met him but later he would say mean things to my mother when she called him about a matter and made her cry.He isnt a very friendly man.The sports part is great.The kids there are very nice and some are a bit immature.Many people i met there would be nice to you and help you in any way they could which was a plus for this school.I believe this school needs work on the curriculum they use, teachers they hire, principal they hire,and real people that work their.They really do make this school out to be something they are not. The only thing they have going for them are the kids that go there and the cleanliness and tidiness of the school.

This school does not monitor their students FCAT scores. When a student fails the FCAT 3 times in the same subject,a RED flag should go up. Someone should try to figure out what is the problem with the student/students and work with the student, parents and TEACHERS to to try to fix it. DONOT ignore this. We should try to save as many children as we possibly can. Oakleaf does not make any effort at all. Unfortuately we are not all born smart, but most students have great potentials. Please work with them. Its a huge part of your job.

Communication with the Administrative staff lacks professionalism; The Principal does not believe in upfront honesty, he would rather stay within the gray area other than give you a straight answer. They are a new school and definitely require attention in many areas. Too many assistant principals not enough department heads. This school has a double standard and shows it in all areas of education and professionalism.

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.
