Umatilla High is a great school. The entire family of Umatilla schools; from Pre-K to 12th, is just that...a big family. We are a small community, and having a close-knit web of teachers who we also call friends, makes this the best place to raise our children. My husband grew up in Umatilla schools and both our boys have gone to Umatilla schools from the beginning also. We CHOSE to live in Umatilla because of the schools. It is by far the best decision we've made for our family. Our oldest son graduated last year and we couldn't be happier that our youngest will be attending UHS next school year. For now, he's enjoying UMS and looking forward to High school. UMS is a great school too! We love everything about UMATILLA!!!

The only great thing about Umatilla high school is the math, and that is only because of one teacher. The English department is a joke and i know for a fact parents are not even remotely involved in the school. I do think the agricultural department is amazing, of course. It's Umatilla! There is almost no bullying though, so that is good. I am duel enrolling just so i can learn something. The would not be my first pick for a school for someone who is new to the county.

As a student of Umatilla high school I have to disagree with the other entries in here. Seriously this school is not all that good. I actually recently just transferred to Eustis high school for educational reasons. I never got homework at Umatilla, and I may be just a student but I feel that homework really helps an education. Honestly I don't like the school all that much.

Umatilla High School has a great academic program. The band is one of the best in the district. The parents involvement is very high. The parents of Umatilla High School students take part in all that their children do.

I think Umatilla Schools are the best. My two children have gone to Umatilla Schools since they started school and we have never had a problem with the schools and the parents try their best to be involved in the schools functions and I really like that. We are finally getting a new high school

I was a part of 2003' project graduation. There were maybe 6-7 parents involved in this from the beginning. I feel this school has no parental support and that is why we have a C school. How can our kids succeed without our support????

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.
