I have had dealings with this school and their audio department years ago and was always so happy to take my daughter there and be met by professionals and sweet staff. Now two of my grandchildren are there and I couldn't be happier. I would recommend this school to anyone looking. The staff is simply there for the families and of course the students. The teachers I have met couldn't be better and more caring. Keep it up, you are doing a fantastic job with the children!

I have two children at this school. I have been very pleased with the staff. The teachers are wonderful, my children are receiving an excellent education. The principal, Mr. Queen shows that he cares about the children, the PTA has multiple activities for the entire family throughout the year. The art teacher, Ms. Noell sincerely loves to create works of art with the kids. I have a child in 2nd grade and one who started there this year in kindergarten. The teachers promote parent involvement. I highly recommend this school.

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.
