Hope is the best school ever for kids with learning disabilities and their siblings. Their field trips are the best I have ever attended. Parents do the transportation and they allow my 20 month old daughter to come along on the field trips. This allows me to participate as a chaperone towards my volunteer hours. The staff are very friendly and they work with the children on their level and I have seen the biggest increase in obtained and retained knowledge since transferring from public school. When my son first started he could not read. Now he is at kindergarten level and getting better daily. He is entering the 4th grade at Hope. I love this school and I will continue sending my son until he graduates. A+++++

Hope Preparatory Academy provides my child with a low stress, educationally challenging environment. This school is certainly a model school that others can learn much from. This school is an incredible gem to have in the city of Tampa and a strong reason for families across the US with special needs children to consider relocating to this area.

This school has changed my child's life! Every teacher has the children's best interest at heart. They feel it is their responsibilty to find how each child learns best. The director is extremely knowledgeable about learning disabilities and helps coordinate services to help each child reach their full potential. They offer speech, occupational and physical therapy, an not for just 15 minutes once a week. There is a nurse on staff. My child feels loved, accepted an respected. There is not another school like HOPE!

This is an excellent school for children with extra needs. Our child gets therapies, assistive technology and more. He is being instructed on his level without being labelled a special student. Everyone at this school has a genuine interest in the children.

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.
