The teacher's at Sneads Elementary School are awesome!! We have such a wonderul community that just loves our teachers and our Principal Mrs. McDaniel. Ms. Krista Mills, Ms. Amy Glass, Ms. Allen, Mrs. Pevy, I could go on and on. We have an A school and we are very proud of the hard work our teachers and students put forth every day! I can't imagine my child going to school anywhere else!

It is a great school. My daughter is in the 1st grade at SES and loves it. The teachers and faculty are great.

I am a former student, present volunteer, and hopefully future teacher at Sneads Elementary. I loved it then almost as much as I do now! I really believe that SES is the best for miles around. The community, location, environment, classroom atmosphere, curriculum, teachers and staff are ALL EXCELLENT! :)

I am both a parent of a student and a former student of Sneads Elementary. My son started kindergarten this year and I was amazed to find that the principal is my old principal. I left there in 1986! She is very close to the children and knows them by name. I can't comment on all the teachers, but my son's teacher is wonderful and I know of other parents who are very happy with the school. They also have plenty of outdoor activities for the kids as well as music programs and other extracurricular activities. I feel like my son is safe at this school. Sneads is a small town with little crime and violent activity.

For a small town like Sneads, this is a great school. It's in good shape. The classrooms look friendly and attractive. The staff has a smile on their face when you walk in the office, and a lot will know your child by name after a while. I believe the parents' involvement is more than average because of the size of the community. The teachers try hard especially to get the kids to read and gain experience in the use of computers. Overall, a great school where your kid can feel at home.

Sneads Elementary is (in my opinion) about the best school a child from our area could attend. The curriculum level, teaching staff and support staff are all tops. The grades received by the state prove that this elementary is one of the finest. My son attends this school and I am pleased with the education he is receiving. All the school staff goes out of their way to make all children at the school feel as special as they truly are. The care and concern is far better than you could image. All in all, Sneads Elementary is a truly exceptional elementary school for any child.

I have 3 children attending sneads schools. I am very pleased with the schools. My kids are learning alot. I would not choose any other school for my children. My kids even love to go to school. To all the staff of the schools: Keep up the great work!

I have two children, one who graduated this year and one who is still attending and is now in the fourth grade. I have been completly satis fied wiht the school and the education that my childrn are recieving. I am a divorced father and visit my children as much as possible, so their education is a major concern of mine. I visit the school almost evry time I vist with my children and the school has not only been receptive to my visits but strongly encourages them. This means a great deal to me and to my children because now I can be a part of the education that they are recieving and my children can see that I'm right there if they need me. I hope that the schoolwil continue to be an A rated school and that all the children will reap the benifits of the schools program.

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.
