School Grades
Schools grades released today show St. Johns County Schools with 20 "A" schools, 1 "B" school, 4 "C" schools, 1 "D" school and no "F" schools. The St. Johns County School District ranked fifth out of 67 counties in the state in the number of "A" schools with 77 percent.

"This was clearly our best year ever in the area of student achievement, and I congratulate all of the students, parents and staff members for their hard work," said Superintendent Joseph Joyner. "Our success is the result of outstanding teaching and support for the schools, along with a very high level of parent involvement. I am extremely proud of everyone associated with our school district."

The eight elementary schools maintaining their "A" status include Cunningham Creek Elementary, Durbin Creek Elementary, Hartley Elementary, R. B. Hunt Elementary, Julington Creek Elementary, Ocean Palms Elementary, Osceola Elementary and Rawlings-Ponte Vedra Palm Valley Elementary. Both Ketterlinus Elementary and Mason Elementary moved from a "B" to an "A" and Mill Creek Elementary moved from an "A" to a "B."

The three new elementary schools received two "A"s and 1 "C." Hickory Creek Elementary and Timberlin Creek Elementary were both "A"s and South Woods Elementary was a "C."

All six middle schools received an "A." Murray Middle School improved from a "C" to an "A" and Gamble Rogers Middle School moved from a "B" to an "A." Fruit Cove, Landrum, Sebastian and Switzerland Point Middle Schools maintained their "A" ranking.

All four high schools retained their current status. Both Bartram Trail High School and Allen D. Nease High School remained "A" schools, Pedro Menendez maintained a "C," and St. Augustine High School (SAHS) stayed a "D."

"It is important to realize that scores improved at SAHS, and the school was only nine points from a "B," said Dr. Joyner. "Improving their grade will be our highest priority next year."

Three other schools, Crookshank Elementary, Pedro Menendez High School and The Webster School, remained a "C."
