This school is a good school, however, I am not having much luck getting my child into advance reading and math classes. I love the fact that he can take violin lessons an I can't wait for the brand new building to be completed in 2005. Overall, I am pleased with the school, however its not the opportune school for advance higher learning.

Great school with involved parents. The adminstration takes the time to get to know parents and students. Wonderful, dedicated teachers take the time that your child needs to excel. Opening the new campus next year will give us the room that we need for all of our activities. This is a choice school for parents who work in the downtown area. Parents are responsible for providing transportation. Violin instruction offered at every grade level. PTA has good events and doesn't have too many fund raising activities.

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.
