This school is one of the worst schools i have ever seen. Kids are not taught how to respect each other because some of the teachers,behavior specialist and even the principal are continuously putting the kids down, creating so much drama. All they worry about is contracts being signed to keep the kids from fighting or bullying. Guess what? they have a no tollerance bully policy and there is more bullying going on than you can believe. There are students that have gone to the school all there lives and can only graduate with a special diploma, whats that telling you? someone is not doing there jobs. They tell you they love when parents get involved,wrong they hate it and take things out on the kids. When they give you a tour they tell you what a wonderful school they have and how much they help your child in school and show them how to live after graduation, that s bull. If I had to do this over again, I would have never sent her here. could go on complaining but I think you get the point.

Food is better at public school, in public school teachers don't throw objects at students, in public school teachers are not racist, public schools have more diversity(more black, Spanish, European) Fsdb has 90% white population. Fsdb is like a j a i l , The dorms are like a j a i l, the teachers and some staff here have mental problems, in public school we dont have to sign or speak a specific language you can speak what ever language you want, While at fsdb, although its not in the student rule book, you must sign which isnt fair to the hearing, teachers in public schools dont act like child molesters toward their students, in public schools you can date who ever you want middle school or high school, and public school boys and girls are permitted to sit together on the same bus in the same seat. public schools have more school pride and dances, The work is like middle school work and students here are a little slow and your have a better chance of passing here than any other school the average student here only reads on a 4 grade level so DONT COME HERE AT ALL

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.
