I have a son who has gone to this school for two years. And this school is only two years old. They do have some bully issues, but that is something the parents should control. Teachers can only do so much. It all starts with home-training. I have personally had great experiences with both teachers my son has had. And I have only had good experiences with all the other staff as well. Now on the other hand, I do believe they need more teachers.

I just had a bad experience with this child care facility. I get off work to pick up my baby. He has a big knot on his head. There was no incident report file and no one in the daycare facility knew what happen. This is unacceptable. I would not recommend this daycare to anyone. The co-workers are not professional. They don't care about nothing but a paycheck. They have cameras but it still did not change anyone.

I agreed with the first comment about the best technology but not the teachers, nor the staff This school was a worst nightmare ever. The teachers don't care and don't know how to deal with the kids. If something happens they will always call you, even small issues. They just want you to bring your kid home. My child is being bully many times there. The teacher didn't even care and didn't even know how to deal or help my child. The school ranking's D of last year. I've 2 kids attending to this school. I'll take him out of this school and take them to Private school. If you're interested to this school. Please be aware of what's gonna happen to your child.

This school has the best technology available and the teachers utilize the equipment daily to keep lessons interesting and the students engaged. High expectations and student responsibility are common. The staff gives 110%.

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.
