I wrote a review previously comparing Crews Lake Middle School to others I've been privileged to be a part of. There IS no comparison! This school is FILLED with talented, caring, dedicated teachers and staff. Students here KNOW we care about them. We actually enjoy seeing our students come in, and students are often upset when extended vacations roll around. Now THAT's something to crow about! Students write and read throughout the school...ALL subjects, even electives. Raider Nation has the P.O.W.E.R! We strive to be R.A.I.D.E.R.-ific!!! (Ask any Raider and they can tell you what these acronyms stand for. :-)

Crews Lake Middle School is full of caring staff members who really do think about what is best for the children. Communication between parents and teachers is encouraged, with weekly, sometimes bi-weekly calls from the school to update parents with any upcoming special events.

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.
