Super school. From the Principal to the Janitor all are treated with respect and helpfulness. Students are always welcomed with Smiles.


Posted December 27, 2011

My daughter was in 1st grade here 3 school years ago. It was the last time her mother was willing to put her in public school. We had no real problems until one day we saw a scribbled not in her backpack that said she had an incident...which turned out being my daughter being coerced by a boy into kissing another boy's genitals. After some calming down, I called the school to ask what was being done...and the principal was completely unaware of the act. I'll end the story here, the point is there was no serious consideration to the harm these kids may have caused each other. That summer we were informed that the school got an F from the state so we were allowed to move. First day of school the county was a complete mess and we were one of many un-registered kids at her new school. We were told to go back to 74th street for just the rest of the week. The admins wouldn't open the front door! They were watching us knock on the glass door and just...choosing not to open it! Once I started knocking a tad more convincingly, they opened and rudely told us "her class is back there". Good luck with the admins at this consistent "F" school.

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.
