WT Moore is the type of school I hope all kids get to experience. As a mother there, I have always felt that my kids were safe and well taken care of. All the staff is willing to help and they are very involved in the learning process for the students. My kids are proud to be Mustangs and I am happy to be a parent helper at the school!

We just finished our 1st year at WT Moore and I am very pleased with the teachers, administrators, and school overall. Both of my children had exceptional teachers who were kind, excited, and working hard to provide an excellent education for their students. I feel like the administrators are very involved and care deeply about the kids and the families that attend WT Moore. I haven't yet figured out why so few people know about this school. We are happy to discovered such a great elementary school.

I have 2 children who attend Moore and have noting but positive things to say about the entire staff. My children love school and their teachers. I like the cleanliness of the campus and the friendliness of the office staff. Everyone from the janitors to the administration is approachable and friendly. They are very good at challenging my high achieving child, yet can also remediate with my daughter who needs a little more help. The teachers are good at communicating and I believe both my children are getting an excellent education at W.T. Moore!

I have a daughter in third grade, and another in first. The teachers have always been very helpful and professional. My oldest daughter excells in most subjects, and the teachers have been very supportive of giving them higher level work to keep them challenged and engaged. Whenver my children have been having problems, the teachers have been proactive about communicating these with us and working towards a resolution. It is very evident that the teachers work together across grade levels to ensure a smooth transition between grades for the children.

I have been a teacher at Moore for more than 18 years and it has been a wonderful experience1 The faculty and staff are 'family' and the students and parents believe education is important. Each teacher goes beyond what is expected to teach and enrich the students in all areas. Our test scores have always been high and the positive atmosphere a delight!

The diversity of this school is very good. The teachers are friendly and are very involved with the students educational progress. I have 2 children at Wt Moore and I would not move them from that school. I feel very confident that my children are safe and in a place where they can see it as a home away from home.

I have a 10 yr old son at WT Moore. He has attended since 2nd grade, when we moved here from another part of FL. The move was a hard one but Moore made my son feel so happy and welcome that it was easier for him than it was for me! I love Moore and will be saddened at the end of this school year when he moves on. The staff is wonderful and the level of education that my son receives is higher than I thought possible ina public school!

Just an awesome school. The teachers are caring and committed, the staff is helpful and supportive, and the principal is wonderful beyond description. Plus, the number of parents who volunteer is enhanced by a group that might be described as 'super volunteers' (and we can't consider ourselves among this group). We're very pleased, and would highly recommend this school to those looking for a place that requires its diverse student body to be respectful and responsible, and meet high standards of achievement.

I have two children who attend this school, one of which has been in the ESE preschool program since age 3. I have been extremely impressed by all the staff. The teachers not only know how to effectively teach our children, but pay attention to their individual needs to ensure that they are learning to their highest potential! What a fantastic 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.
