High school grades released today show that the St. Johns County School District (SJCSD) continues to be a leader in performance and FCAT scores. The high school grades are based on 2011-12 FCAT scores, as well as graduation rate, participation and performance in accelerated programs, and college readiness skills.
Out of the district’s high schools that receive a school grade, four received an “A,” Bartram Trail, Creekside, Ponte Vedra, and St. Augustine high schools. Two received a grade of “B,” Nease and Pedro Menendez high schools.
“These scores are incredible and I am very proud of all of our high schools for their effort and determination to achieve these outstanding results,” said Superintendent Dr. Joseph Joyner. “Our success is attributed to the hard work of our students, teachers, dedicated parents and support staff as well as the exceptional leadership through our principals.”
“We continue to support high expectations for all students and this is evident in the grades released today,” he added. “All of our high schools earned well above the required points to receive an “A”, but automatic triggers placed in sub populations of students caused these two schools to receive a “B” grade.”
