This is my daughter's second year at Wadsworth (1st grader). Her reading is outstanding as well as her comprehension. Her teacher really takes time out with my child and always keep me abreast of her progress.

My son has been with Wadsworth since K and our family loves this school. He started second grade this year with a teacher that was not a good match for my son and I brought my concerns to the schhol administration. Within a day the problem was resolved and my son is enjoying second grade now. I cant say enough about the support you get from the staff at Wadsworth. The office staff and teachers are fantastic. I am enrolled in First choice and I couldnt be happier about the decision. I give this school A++++++++++ !

I have two sons that attend Wadsworth and I love it. They have gone above and beyond to help my boys excel. My boys have ADHD and it's very hard to get people to understand it takes alot of time and compassion to understand what they are going through. All the teachers and staff have helped me every step of the way and go out of there way to make my children have wonderful school years. My husband and I could not have a better school for our children. Thanks so much. Mrs. A. Read

My son has attended this school since pre-k. He is now in 2nd grade. I'm very happy with his progress, especially in reading. His teachers over the years have been excellent. They are patient and very caring. If I could keep him there until he graduates high school, I would. This school rates A++ for me.

Both of my children attend, one is in the gifted program. Definitely a wonderful place. Lots of great teachers who seem to really care. Security standards are good too.

The elementary program for gifted is housed here. It's your only choice in this county if you want gifted education. I rate it a B. I would like to see a stronger emphasis on foreign language and science. Mr Maxcy was a great principal but is leaving in the fall of 2004 so that is an unknown. The campus is crowded and a little aged, but many of the teachers are good. They put on a great musical every year if you have a child interested in performance.

Really concerned with the cleanliness of restroom areas. Wasn't impressed about letting my child attend the after school program there. Tell me I'm wrong...

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.

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.
