Well i am so tired of dealing with this problem.I've had a guidance counselor tell my daughter to fake it and try to get a passing grade!She is 17 now and studying for the GED.I want her to really learn and have fun learning in high school but instead she hates school.Middle school was worse than high school though.

A beautiful school with many resources in a great community of involved parents and educators. It's location gives it a rural feel and the community has a passion for both acedemic and athletic excellence.

The staff at Hagerty is wonderful. They're always pleasant and willing to help. It's been a great school for our son, who's a senior this year.

For public education, and in comparison to many other high schools in the state of Florida, Hagerty has consistently proven to be a great school for academics, arts and sports.

A busy, noisy school with many good teachers. A drinking-oriented social life, with some peer pressure to drink. Coaches form cliques. AP offerings overly intense, with a blizzard of worksheets that do not replicated college-level work but are like middle school homework on steroids. Tacky having the stadium named for the principal. Huge contingent of rednecks and a pickup-truck culture.

This is my 5th year of having a student at HHS. Over that time, the growth has been managed quite well. As with any organization--the character of a school starts at the top. At HHS, the principal is Sam Momary. This man has a tireless passion for improving HHS. He is always available, ready to accept criticism, and actively takes a hand in fixing problems at all levels. Even when I disagree with a decision or course of action--I can't help but respect a man who cares more for the school, the students, and the parents than he does for the politics, the bureaucracy, and the board. Thank you, Sam--for all you've done.

"Hagerty appeared to be an excellent school-that is until they switched to a block schedule...." I agree 100% with you. I have subbed a lot at Hagerty and found that when the school switched over to the block scheduling, less curriculum was covered in the same time period. The problem though that this school and many other schools in the state are facing are massive budget cuts. The block scheduling allowed them to give more teachers classes for the same pay without having to hire any more teachers. (They did this out of necessity.) Teachers gained about a class size more of students. Unfortunately, when things like this happen, sometimes quality suffers. However, when compared to other high schools in the area, Hagerty is an excellent school with excellent teachers and a superb administration. Kids really enjoy going here and have a lot of loyalty to their school.

This school is amazazazing!!! This school has one of the best AP programs in the State!!! Also the band program rocks, although we got a new band teacher, because he was from Lake Howell High with one of the top band programs in the state, many people seem to love him!!! It also has amazing teachers and the curriculum is very good which can push the kids for a better education, but is also easy on the students. I recommend coming to this school for its amazingness!!!!!!!!!

Hagerty appeared to be an excellent school-that is until they switched to a block schedule. with this block schedule kids are forced to spend almost two hours in some classes while shorted in some others. None of the teachers seem to know how to work the schedule and it has been very frustrating. There are numerous studies which show that block scheduling is a poor choice, especially for the sciences.

Excellent school. My daughter is taking AP classes, has a 4.5 GPA and will have about a year of college done when she graduates. A Bright Futures full scholarship is virtually assured. We had one serious issue we had to address with the principal, Sam Momary. At first I didn't agree with his plan to resolve it. Reluctantly, I gave him the chance to do it his way. In the end, everything turned out well. He did the best thing for everyone involved.

This school is truly amazing. The teachers are great. The work is challenging but not too difficult. The students don't have many cliques. It's a great school.

Hagerty HS offers a wide range of academic programs from AP, Honors, Gifted, and Standards. The extracurricular activities are top notch. The administrative staff is superior to any I've dealt with in the past. I am very happy with Hagerty HS and look forward to many years of involvement with this school and our community.

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.
