Floresta is a wonderful school with a long and rich history of excellence. This year we celebrate its 30th birthday. The school played a vital role in the community in the early days, and many of the students who attended in the 80′s and early 90′s are now parents whose children are enrolled. It is exciting to have former students as part of school family and we are honored that they chose Floresta for their children.Read More

With the end of the school year approaching, Florida schools are preparing for FCAT 2.0 testing. FCAT 2.0 Reading, Mathematics, and Science will be administered from April 15 – 26, 2013.
The FDOE encourages parents to learn more about Florida’s assessment. The following documents are provided to help parents understand the purpose of the FCAT 2.0 and what the assessment looks like for students: FCAT 2.0 Fact Sheet, FCAT 2.0 Frequently Asked Questions, FCAT 2.0 Sample Questions and Answer Keys.
The following testing policies are in effect to ensure security and validity of results:
Electronic Devices—If your child is found with any electronic devices, including but not limited to cell phones and smart phones, during testing, including bathroom breaks, his or her test will be invalidated. Students should either leave devices at home or in their lockers on the day of testing.
Testing Rules Acknowledgment—Prior to testing, test administrators read testing rules to students, and students must acknowledge they understand the rules by signing the Testing Rules Acknowledgment statement.
Test Invalidations—Students are responsible for working on their own during the test and for protecting their answers. If students are caught cheating during testing, their tests will be invalidated. Additionally, the department employs a test security company, Caveon Test Security, to analyze student test results to detect unusually similar answer patterns.
Leaving Campus—If your child leaves campus before completing the test (e.g., for an appointment), he or she will not be allowed to complete the test. If your child does not feel well on the day of testing, it may be best for him or her to wait and be tested on a make-up day. Please be mindful not to schedule appointments on testing days.
Students perform best with plenty of rest and a nutritional breakfast prior to testing. The department recommends parents ensure students are well-rested and encourage students to do their best during testing.Read More
