As a parent I am pleased with the whole staff at SHS. I will say that, other than an excelent Math program, the school doesnt challange the children as much as I feel they should.

I am a student at Sneads High and I hate it. It offers little to none academic opportunities except high math courses. The only real extracurriclar activites they care about are football and Agg. Anything else gets the backburner, if they're lucky enough for even that. The only upside of this school are the teachers and office faculty that try to make it a more bearable place but can only do so much. So please, don't blame them for this school's poor, poor performance.

My child is in honors classes, but she has very little homework and takes very few notes. It seems like there is a lot of playing going on in the classroom. I am concerned that she is not getting the quality education she needs to enable her to do well in college.

I got one thing to say about this school...it's boring! I take honors classes, and yet I still feel like I am sitting around doing nothing. I'm sure if you wanted to go to a school that you can near-bout sit around doing nothing all day, then Sneads is definately the place.

I really like that I can check my kids grades on line when they are posted. That edline send me an email each time. There is a home town felling at Sneads High. I can reach my kids teacher by phone or by internet when I have a question. My fourteen year old in getting the help she need with her ADD and my thridteen year old is in all of her gifted classes. This school has year round training for academic programs and sports extracurricular activities.

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.
