This school has been a dream come true! My daughter graduated with her high school diploma and her A.A degree at the same time and my other daughter is well on her way. The principle and guidance counselors truly love their jobs and guide these kids in the right direction. All of the teachers are fantastic and teach to the highest standards. The students seem to have one shared goal, to be successful. It is a great staff and student body. I would recommend this school to anyone that has a motivated teenager that wants to succeed.

My step-daughter moved here from Canada and attended St. Petersburg High School. Her grades in Canada were far below horrifying!! The guidance counselors and the teachers kept my informed about her academic progress on a weekly basis. I was impressed to learn that my step daughter loved this school so much. She brought up all of her grades to a level that me and her father were both proud. Thank you, staff for such a parent-student-teacher hands on approach. I only wished more teachers in the community were as good as all of you.

What a FANTASTIC school program this is! My son graduated from high school last year and a few days later, graduated from the same school with an A.A. degree, earned for free and concurrent with high school! We didn't even have to pay for the books! The faculty is the best in education and is so very friendly and helpful. We can only say that we were disappointed that our second son wasn't able to get into the school for the 2008 term - there are only limited spaces and a HUGE waiting list! I wish they could increase the size of this program as it is EXCELLENT!

I'm a sophomore at St Pete Collegiate and it is amazing! I'd recommend it to anyone who is looking for a unique, challenging, and fun school experience.

I am currently a student at this school and it is the best school ever. All the students are very accepting of each other. The education is the best available, all of the teachers care a lot about the students. I would recomend this school to anyone who wants to try it.

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.
