My children and grandchildren have done very well at this school. The teachers are excellent and my children and grandchildren excelled in their studies and received very good grades. I have not heard of any parent or child disappointed in the academic teachings here.

My daughter is a principles honor student but the only thing keeping her from recieving that award is all the n's they want to give out for every little mis-hap that she does,I think thats alittle overboard, teachers there need to work on being more patient with the students, focus on teaching, not walking out of line too lunch.

My children have been going to this school for along time now and we have loved almost every experience we have had there. But they have recently added a new PTA president and she scares me. I know for a fact she is a convicted felon and should not be working at a school. They need to run background checks on school volunteers. Other than that the new principil seems to be just what they needed and most the teachers are A+++

I think the A grade last year gave some teachers an attitude. The principal is great but some teachers lack empathy for students that need extra help.

My children (in kindergarten & 1st) love the teachers and love going to this school. They are very proud to be Wildcats!! Teachers are very knowledgable and helpful - Mine have no problems setting up conferences or replying to my notes.

Quality of academic programs seems fine, but all students needs are not being addressed. ELL and ESE students may or may not get their needs addressed, depending on their teacher.

This school has an excellent reading program. A 90 min. reading block is mandatory for all students. There's a reason why staff take their own children and that is that they trust each other and have high standards. Schools in this district focus on FCAT and academics so extracurricular activities are minimal at any school.

My daughter was a new student and she developed quickly and well her new second language. They reinforced her in the areas that she needed. She took music lessons and participated in some plays. The PTA reunions always went smoothly.

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.
