I am concerned that scores are falling. Sports are great but I prefer to see after school programs that encourage thinking skills and other expressions of self. Football is great! My husband played but he also got a 3.5 in academics. When he blew out his knee, it was important that he had solid problem solving skills and was able to find another profession. Most children do not play football. I am wondering why kids have to pay to go to games at the school. Poor kids can't afford to pay to watch games and get out of class. Seems a little unfair to some kids. My daughter loves her art teacher and I think that art, and music events should be encouraged. What about some trade classes. Not every kid gets to go to college. Auto shop, Wood shop, computer office program training, THESE are real life skills that can be used after high school. How about spending some of the budget on real life skills classes. I took Microsoft basics classes and it helped me get a good job. My teens can't even type correctly. School priorities seem off.

This school lacks cultural diversity and cultural awareness. Children are learning to be closed minded. Children are being bullied for being different and this is the result of homogenous thinking and teaching. Teachers and Administration give nods to this intolerance by not factually understanding what diversity is. It is more than colors of skin. It is also applauding diversity of thought.

We moved here from Scotland and have found the pupils and staff friendly and supportive during what could have been a diffcult transitional period for our son.

This is a great community based school just outside a large city in Florida. It has access to all of the benefits of a city, but maintains a small family atmosphere for it's students. Our kids like the small class sizes and friendly teachers--they get lots of opportunities offered by bigger schools, with less peer pressure. Drugs and alcohol are not a big problem there. I like that a lot. We have one of the best band directors in the county--and it shows on the football field. I've been here 5 years, and Bozeman is great!

This school is great for kids of grades k-high school.music, art, sports, you name it they have it. parents have a great deal of parent involvement. If your kid is haveing a problem in any of the subject you are informed immetitaly, If you don't feel okay about the school your child is going to give Bozeman a try. Take it from me I went there, and it was the best school I EVER went to.

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.
