The Orlando School System
Orlando, Florida, is part of the Orange County Public School (OCPS) District. With an enrollment of about 207,000 students, it is the 4th largest school district in the state and the 9th largest in the country. The area is home to almost 190 public schools, including 20 high schools.
Varsity Tutors can help parents of these students connect with professional Orlando tutors who have the experience and time to work individually with a child to help them reach their academic goals. Whether your child is struggling with concepts in one of the core curriculum areas or they need to be challenged to remain interested in education, private tutoring may offer a solution.
The Florida Standards Assessments, or FSA, exams are for Florida students in grade three and up. These tests provide educators with a tool for measuring a student’s academic progress and growth throughout the entirety of their academic career. The subjects covered are in alignment with the nationally recognized Common Core standards and include Mathematics, English Language Arts; Science in grades five and eight; and End of Course exams in Geometry, Biology, Civics, U.S. History, and Algebra 1.
The first test in the third grade and the exam given in the tenth grade can be especially stressful for students. The third-grade exam requires students to receive a passing score before being promoted to the fourth grade. The tenth-grade exam is the first opportunity students have to pass their final FSA. Students must earn a passing score on this exam before they are eligible for graduation. If a student is unable to achieve a passing score before the end of their senior year, they have a few other options, but a passing FSA score is the easiest way forward.
Standardized exams such as the ACT, SAT, FSA, or ISEE can all add an extra level of stress for students. A personal Orlando tutor can help alleviate some of your child’s anxiety by giving them ample opportunity to prepare themselves for a timed testing experience. This practice can be invaluable, especially for those students who may be needlessly worried that there won’t be sufficient time to answer all the exam questions.

Regardless of your child’s age and strength in testing, they need to stay focused on reaching their academic potential. This becomes especially important as your child enters middle school and begins to consider which university he or she wishes to attend. Are you wondering which high school may be most beneficial in preparing your child for college? We’ve compiled data on some Orlando schools to help begin your research:
Orlando High School Rankings

|Winter Park High Schol||1||35||38%|
|Orlando Science Middle/High Charter School||2||46||N/A|

Most parents are aware that a professional Orlando tutor can help their child with specific academic goals such as preparing for a standardized exam or addressing a deficiency in a particular subject. But did you know that all students can benefit from a higher level of personalized instruction? Consider the student-teacher ratios of some of the largest Orlando schools:
Orlando Student-to-Teacher Ratios
Colonial High School has a 24 1 student-teacher ratio.
Dr. Phillips High School has a 21 1 student-teacher ratio.
Freedom High School has a 23 1 student-teacher ratio.
Olympia High School has a 24 1 student-teacher ratio.
Cypress Creek High School has a 21 1 student-teacher ratio.
Florida State Average has a 15 1 student-teacher ratio.
In a traditional classroom setting, a child must share the attention of the instructor with as many as thirty other students at a time. Even in smaller classrooms with only fifteen students, that is still a far cry from personalized instruction. Working with a professional tutor gives your child the opportunity to work with someone on precisely what they need to achieve their academic potential.
If you or your child is preparing for the rigorous transition to college, it is important to remember that professional tutoring isn’t limited to the K-12 arena. Varsity Tutors can help university students connect with private tutors in the Orlando area who can offer the guidance they need to achieve their academic goals. Some of the colleges in the Orlando area include:
