I have student from Pahokee Elementary that is now at Pahokee Middle-Senior School and they really need all the assistants they can get to help become a better school of graduates. They need supplies and other learning materials and I hope this vote gets them this help. Erma Harrison

the teachers are great but students are a mess they don't respect the school any more its full of trash and they only care for the football team and nothing more....

I rate this school above average. This school is ran by a wonderful staff & it is a place where all students are accepted & given a chance to be someone in the world. I don't blame the teachers for grades students get because a student is as smart as the student wishes to be & it's not right for people to put a student down because of where their from. Our school is not perfect but it gives us a chance that most people don't & our campus is always nice & clean. It is a wonderful place to learn. We even provide students the chance to be part of the i.B program which is for gifted students. Our school is the same as any other and we are five time football class 2b state champs. We also have the best band in the state of Florida.

I have been a substitute in the Glades area for 3 years and am also an alumnus this school. Pahokee Mid/Sr High is in desperate need of a makeover. Students lack respect for themselves, their students, and most surprisingly their instructors. A school which lacks discipline is not on track to improve in academic areas, in my opinion. Thanks to teachers who have been employed at this school for many years, and who are usually from the area and genuinely care for the students, the school has maintained its ability to at least be a 'C' ranked school. I would be depriving my fellow citizens if I lied and stated that the school was excellent. Maybe a few years back when students cared more about their future but, in reference to the present our community will be lost if 'WE' as a community don't make a change NOW! -An honest individual

I would like to say I am new to this area. I think that it a very nice school for my kids.

As a graduate, I would have to say that this school ranks below average in almost every catagory. It has made some improvements during my tenure, but overall is very lacking. The staff is supportive and helpful, but have very limited resources to draw from. It is sad to see a school with so much potential wasted.

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.
