FCAT Scores

Scores for the Florida Comprehensive Assessment Test (FCAT) were received today and St. Johns County students continue to excel. On the Sunshine State Standards (SSS), which are required skills for graduation, St. Johns County students scored extremely well in reading, math, science and End-of-Course (EOC) assessments among all 67 Florida school districts.

FCAT Science was given to students in fifth and eighth grades. St. Johns County fifth graders and eighth graders ranked first in the state.

The FCAT, which assesses reading (third through 10th grades), math (third through eighth grades) and science (fifth and eighth grades) skills, was given in April to students throughout the state. Achievement levels range from one to five, with Level 3 being considered proficient. The test is part of a statewide effort to increase student performance and school accountability.

“I am extremely proud of the efforts of our teachers, students and curriculum staff,” said Superintendent Dr. Joseph Joyner. “Once again our students scored well above the state average in every assessment.”

St. Johns County students ranked first in EOC assessments for Algebra 1, Geometry and Biology 1. Students also ranked first in the baseline year for the U.S. History EOC assessment.
