Most of my sons years here have been great, however the changing in staff in the administration has been crazy. You can hardly get to talk to them in a timely manner, and when you do have a concern I feel because they have not been there long enough they just blow you off. This year was horrible and my son had problems all year because of it.

I love Coquina!!! It has been great finding challenging outlets for both of my daughters. The teachers are your friends there to help you help your children succeed. The staff is wonderful. I have yet to find a staff member that I did not like. My children have been going there for five years and it has been a wonderful ride. I hope I am a successfull teacher at Coquina some day!!!

As a mother of one I find Coquina to be a great place for kids to learn. This is my sons first year of school and he is finding peace in his class and love from his teachers.

Very unorganized and unstructured. The leaders of the school seem uninformed and ignorant when it comes to leadership skills. My daughter will not be back.
—Submitted by a parent


Posted December 18, 2003

I think this school has been very unorganized from the beginning of the school year. This is my son's first year there, and I hope it will be his last. If it wasnt for his teacher whom I adore greatly, he would not be finishing the year here!

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.
