I really like bayshore and my daughter just loves it there. She will be going into first grade this year and she really has progressed so much.

Everything is centered around the FCAT. This was my childs first year taking the test and it has been shoved down these kids throats. Our kids are learning how to pass a test, school is not what it used to be.

I have 2 boys in this school the first 2 years were wonderful with very proactive teachers, the teacheres the past 2 years spend more time with green slips and blue slips for the reason of discipline be it known you qualify for a blue or green slip if you turn to your neighbor or yawn and the teacher refuses to hear that is all you did there should be more emphasis on the good these students do, we never hear the good things kids need structure yes and they also need to learn to be proud and know that it is possible to achieve their goals in learning and not being beat down to the point where school feels like a punishment, I just finished college and I enjoyed school, children should also.

My child has enjoyed shcool and while I visit often I believe the staff and the teaching staff are doing a wonderful job all the way around.

The teachers are not very active in letting the student enjoy the whole school spirit all they are concerned with are test scores they don't even act like they enjoy teaching any more just as long as students pass the required test who cares if they actually like to learn in that sort of enviroment.............

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.
