this school has no nurse and takes very little action, but they have very nice staff members


Posted January 10, 2012

RUN AWAY! This small school has nothing to offer its students or its parents! If your child did not attend the year before, they can not enroll in any extra activites. The staff is not friendly! Just like other schools there are good and bad teachers... This one seems to have more bad then good. When asked about a PTO.. There is not one! When asked how a parent can be involved in school, we were told this is a middle school not Elementary! The library is not open before or after school due to the librarins choice! THIS IS A FACT!!! There is no art classes and they are very limited to only two sports teams. The guidence dept. is a joke!!! Run Away! Take a chance on a bigger school. Nothing is good about this school! I wanted to write this review because new friends of ours told us about a really bad school their child is attending and it turned out to be Umatilla middle school.

I have two children at this school and have found that the teaching is excellent. The staff are professional and friendly. They are willing to discuss any issue that you may have. They are always in the corridor at class change time for close supervision of students and in maintaining student safety. Office staff are always welcoming and know the children well. This is most definately a 'small town' school where the education and personal development of children is at the top of the list. Parental involvement is encouraged at all times and the parents are always there to support the school especially at concerts and events. My kids love this school.

I was pleasantly surprised over this school as I had never been there and didn't know anything about it until the day I was scheduled there. Good administration, peaceful atmosphere, kids in the library really learning. I think it comes from the 'small town' atmosphere and the roots that this gives the children. Very nice and involved staff and teachers. Good support to teachers and substitutes. No bad discipline problems that I was able to find the day I was there. A higher-quality Lake County school.

The students are great at this school. They care about their futures and their fellow classmates and the faculty. They feep the grounds and the hallways clean and have the best school spirt of any school in Lake County.

This is the greatest school a student could attend. If a student wants to achieve he or she will have every chance to do so. The teachers are the best and will push students to do their very best. AAA plus

About the tests

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.
