I have 2 children that attend Chapel Trail Ele. School. One is now in 4th grade, the other is in 2nd grade. They both are doing absolutely wonderful at this school. Their academic schools have been the best - and I know it is because of the wonderful teachers they have. Not only are the teachers skilled in their profession, but also show very personal emotional feelings toward all the children and it shows in their development. My highest regard to them all!

We moved to Broward County from Montgomery County Maryland in August of 2003. My daughter attended Chapel Trail for a period of 45 days and I decided to withdrawal her from school after discovering that she was being treated unfairly. My 9 year old daughter was a victim of racial discrimination at the hands of the two guidance counselors at Chapel Trail. I would strongly advise African Americans (especially single parents) to closely monitor the schools staff and ask questions of their children.

After several years in the charter school system, Chapel Trail Elementary is a breath of fresh air. The school is organized and the teachers are tops. My kids love it and so do I.

About the tests


In 2012-2013 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 writing in grades 4, 8 and 10. 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.
