I have spent nearly half the school year at this school, and I have hated it with a fiery passion...The Teachers do NOT help, they expect us to know EXACTLY what to do and I have barely learnt a thing...


Posted September 21, 2010

The teacher, some, do the best they can with what they are given. The student are kids. If the teachers and administraters are not reaching them then they are FAILING these kids. The parents are definately not involved in their kids education. No wonder they are not interested in learning. We have a long way to go.

Warrington Middle School staff is doing the best they can to help their students acchieve their goals and succed.

The administration is wonderful. They are trying their best to improve student grades and discipline. The problem is the student population they have to deal with - the best teachers cannot control the students when the classes are bigger than they should be. The students are given all the materials, homework and lessons to succeed but once they leave the school they no longer care. As a teacher at the school I never had homework turned in, no matter how many calls I made home to parents. The majority (not all) of parents at the school simply do not care enough for their children's school work to help them improve. The teachers and administration are doing the best job they can with what resources they are given.

I think the school is over the top on protection. Ive personally been there and its like big brother is watching you. The teachers are lacking with discipline though. Except for Mr. Ladner and Mr. Kennedy. The principal is to caught up in how the studentslook and how the school looks to see the reality of the grades and the failing lunch system and the condition of the school.

If the leadership was the best at this school, it would have received a better grade than a D. Leadership at this school lacks consistent discipline procedures. I agree that it is too focused on other things instead of ways to help our students learn. The faculty does have high expectations for the students but lacks the backing of the administration.

I am not happy with his school at all. Too focused on other things and not focused on helping our students learn!!!

I believe that the leadership at Warrington Middle School is the best in the district. Ms. Nixon stays on top of things to ensure her teachers are well informed and trained on new procedures before they become mandated. She loves to have fun, but is all business when she needs to be. All the faculty have high expectations for the students. Parent involvement is very much encouraged, but I believe that, due to the homelife that many of these kids have, there is a great lack of continuity between home and school. I do agree, the lunches are disgusting and I believe they have a lot to do with the fact that the students' behavior deteriorates after lunch.

My daughter enjoys being at this school. I have only had 2 teachers give my daughter any problems. Those issues resolved on their own. I think the principal and office staff are courteous and supportive of parent involvement. I also think that the teachers here have worked with my child to bring up her scores. Overall she has had good grades and likes going to school.

I believe Jeb Bush does very little to help better Florida schools. This school has not made it's AYP in the three years we've been stationed here, and I believe it's been longer than that since it has. It has received a D as far as grading goes. I don't want to blame the staff - I think that lack of resources plays a major role in this situation. I emailed Mr. Bush quite a long time ago with my concerns about the school and haven't received a reply yet. (Don't intend to) My son does enjoy being in the school band, the principal is a very lovely woman, most of the teachers are easy to like, but things could be better if they only had more resources.

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.
