I am a former student of Crystal Lake Elementary School.I have to compliment the staff,and the programs they have provided for the students. They always ensure that every student learns,but still enjoys school. This is a great school,and I would recommend it to anyone.

My daughter has been at this school 3 years now. I have had nothing but great experiences with this school. The teachers have always kept me inform with what was going on in the classroom and how my child was doing in comparison. Books are always sent home for reading improvement. My daughter was diagnosed ADD thru several tests that were provided thru the school, as well as, counselling sessions. She now as an education plan setup which allows her to be in smaller groups and more individualized attention. She is also receiving tutoring 3x a week at no charge to me. ALso, there are many activities available for the kids to participate in and parental involvement is always encouraged.

Crystal Lake Elementary was absolutely everything we could expect from an elementary school. Starting from the administration on down, we saw professionalism. The teachers were all very kind and caring, as well as thorough. When we had concerns, the staff always made themselves available to talk to which was very comforting to parents. I think Mrs. Anderson and Mr. Flanagan set a level of excellence for the school which is reflected throughout the school. I believe both also made themselves available to listen to any issues pertaining to the school. It takes alot of work for a school to make it to an A-rating, but to maintain that rating takes dedication and drive to strive. And that is what makes Crystal Lake even more special. A special thanks to everyone at Crystal Lake for six wonderful years for my daughter.

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.
