This is school is wonderful! We couldn't be happier! Thank you SHILOH teachers! You ALL are amazing!

Mediocre at best. Teachers are as big of gossipers as the students. Website is outdated. Teachers are always asking for supplies. Field trips are ridiculously expensive. And I just pray my kid is prepared for high school. If your are best friends with the teachers then your kid will pass with flying colors. if you happened to be a non custodial parent of a student there, good luck in trying to have the teachers communicate with you. The principle on the other hand is very helpful and nice, she needs to have better control of her teachers and their personal relationships with parents.

Shiloh is an excellent school. My daughter goes to elementary there and I have seen her teachers really help with the kids to learn and achieve. They are also very caring and respectful. And they teach the kids to be the same. My daughter loves school there. And with that she wants to achieve more.

We have been with Shiloh from the start and it gets better every year! One could never imagine how hard the teachers work to make every student successful.

I find that Shiloh Charter is a blessing to my daughter and my family. We have always been welcomed with opened arms. Even though our scores dropped to a C, my daughter still excelled. She did better this year than the last year when the school was an A. I give kudos to the teachers. Everyone seems to be giving Shiloh a bad name, but I'm not. We are truly blessed as parents to have a school that cares. I feel my daughter is safe and most of all she is learning and having fun. Go Stars!!

Although I understand the need to provide a different environment for students, I am concerned about the academic results of last year. If I want my children to be prepared for Middle and High school, I'm not sure if Shiloh is up to that challenge. When comparing Shiloh's FCAT scores to other Plant City schools (including Title I schools), Shiloh definately 'missed the mark'. A great school should be able to provide a supportive and loving environment AND prepare them academically.

I am extremely pleased with the leadership and staff at Shiloh. My kids love it there. Looking forward to many more wonderful years there. Great principal, staff and teachers!

Shiloh is a great school with not only focus on academics, but also on having good character. The atmosphere and moral of the faculty is positive and good. The principal and assistant principal are positive role models for the students and truly care for the health and achievement of each student and faculty member. I am so blessed to have the great support and backing of the administration AND parents. I have never taught at a better school.

Formed with good intentions last school year, 07-08, I would have rated it as a 5 or higher. This year, not so much. In an effort to give unearned recognition to its principal, the school grew faster than it needed to for the first 3 years. The school should have maintained a smaller student population so that all the kinks could be worked out. Instead, due to student population growth and the acquisition of poorly trained or totally unqualified persons to fill teaching positions, Shiloh's just released 08-09 FCAT scores took a dive. This school, that once had such potential, is now just your average mediocre school.

Great School - Fantastic Teachers I like their emphisis on character education, and academic excellance. My child's behavior at home has made a complete turn around. Its nice to have a child that is cooperative, respectful and eager to go to school every day. Thank you Shiloh.

I feel that Shiloh is a tremendous blessing and I am proud to be a part of the faculty which is more like a family. Our school is 100% administrative supportive as well as parent supportive!

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.
