Absolutley LOVE Sunridge!!! I have had nothing but a great experience at Sunridge! Teachers and admin have nothing but the best interest of their students in mind.

Wow, unless the board changes the principle, this school will not change. I have both my kids in this elementary and have had a plateau of issues that have gone ignored. I have raised my concerns to the school board and that is the only way to get any action from administration. How can the middle school get a better rating? Teachers are weak and education is strongly lacking. I'm so disappointed I moved into this areas 2 years ago and was forced to send my children here.

Unless the administration changes this school will continue to let down the children and parents. I gave the school one star for being clean and organized, at least to an outside eye. Time after time the school will disregard concerns if students and parents and their primary concern is thee budget, not educating young minds.

Awful parent involvement and it shows. A lot of parents in this area are focused on having the latest cell phone or rims on their car instead of reading to their children and caring for them. It's very sad! You couldn't pay me to send my kids back there!

So after the first year this school has been open, it has received a 'C' rating...even with all the great teachers, active administration, and brand new technology. One of the very obvious main issues here is parent involvement. Teachers, PTO, and a few involved parents have noticed this lack of parent involvement all during the first year of operation. Lack of the parent's interest in the students education will continue to hold this school back from "making the grade". There are too many choices for A rated elementary schools in the local area to 'settle' for a Florida 'C' rated school.

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.
