This school has an amazing administrative team who truly care about the educational and emotional needs of ALL of their students!! They push the teachers to be the best they can be for their students and are always looking for ways to improve. This is a great school with excellent leaders!

This is my grandson's second year at Meadow Park and they are some of the kindest people I have met. He had difficulty with separation anxiety and their caring is what helped him to over come it. He is was excited to go to school this year and we requested out of district for this school. There were major staff changes from last year with the principle retiring and the new one as well as the assistant are learning the ropes. I give them all thumbs up for their involvement in all the activities and their caring.

Not good, not good. We are new to this school. There is no family atmosphere. Everyone is angry and rude. My children don't even like it. I have never had such a difficult time dealing with a school. I notice that nobody has posted a good comment since 2010. Wonder why. Its about time some recent posts go up. NOT the school I was hoping for to send my children. Nothing good to say. I give a "0". Poor, poor rating.

My child has been at this school since K and is now in 2nd grade. Words are hard to find when a school treats your child and yourself as a large family and not a number. Countless teachers and staff from every grade knows your child name and is as kind and helpful. The principal is always available and stands at parent pick up even helping children into the cars. Education is organized, fun and the children stay entertained by the teachers. There is never a shortage of work and if they feel your child is ahead they quickly move them to an accelerated class. This is a 5 Star School and thanks to a great guidance couns. They are even pro active regarding early bully behavior (I have seen none at any grade level yet) Way to go Meadow Park!

A very involved school with both parents and staff. Always a smile and greeting for your child. Easy access to staff, with many new programs, books and equipment. Even with 3 hurricanes our children had a stable and healthy learning environment. Great school and staff

Overall we have been happy with this school. There are differences we have noticed after coming from an EXCELLENT school but nothing major. I would have liked to have more mandatory meetings with teachers. Meetings were scheduled only at parent request but it is nice to go in to hear the good things about your child. We really never got to develop any kind of relationship with all the different teachers including 'specials' teachers like PE, art, etc. In general we have been happy.

My son had a wonderful experience at Meadow Park and I think that the staff really go the extra mile to educate our children in many different ways. I am glad that I choose for him to attend there. Parents really need to take an active roll in their childrens' school in order to know what is going on and the why's of the testing that is done in their school.

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.

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.
