I am diligently looking to remove my child from this school. Many of the children in her Kindergarten class have never been to Pre-K, so my child's education is taking a hit because she is working on a more advanced level. The teacher seems like she cares, but has a problem with differentiated learning and assignments. I am strongly considering going for broke and putting her into private school. Although Title I, the classrooms are overcrowded and the parents are VERY uninvolved. Do not walk - RUN - away from this school.

This school is not one of the best and some of the teachers here are subpar. One of the teachers there named mrs. Sellers is lazy. She doesn't get out her seat and let's the kids do all her running around. She doesn't know how to take control of her class and calls the parent every day for what??? Not pleased with the principal, asst principal, and some teachers. If you don't get involved with your child at school these people don't care either. Do not stop bypass this school. No ratings!!! It lacks leadership!!!

I visited this school and it didn't look bad until I actually met the principal ... a Mr. Gibson. I was appalled. His attitude was smug and I am not sure he's all that smart. Perhaps an accident? Regardless, I made sure my girls did not attend.

its a great school. teachers work hard and it shows through the learning and progress these children make. i trust my daughter getting a good education here than in the last school she was in. Her experience was great and the teacher she had was very concern for her to be able to progress and pass.

This school lacks discipline. If concerned parents do not step up and do something, than I am afraid something bad will happen.

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.
