High school grades released today show that the St. Johns County School District continues to be a leader in performance and FCAT scores. High school grades are based on 2013-14 FCAT scores, as well as the graduation rate, participation and performance in accelerated programs and college readiness skills.
Of the district high schools that received a school grade, Bartram Trail, Creekside, Pedro Menendez and Ponte Vedra all received an “A,” while St. Augustine and Allen D. Nease received a “B.”
“I could not be more proud of all of our high schools,” said Superintendent Dr. Joseph Joyner. “It is important to note that the criteria used to determine school grades was raised this year and yet our high schools continued to excel. I attribute this success to the higher standards, very high expectations, outstanding teachers, dedicated school leaders and district support. Most importantly, we have very focused and dedicated students with strong parent support. I continue to be astounded at the breadth of choice offerings both within the school district and at each individual school, high academic achievement and extracurricular participation. It is a great time to be a high school student in St. Johns County.”
The state also released the four-year federal graduation rate data today. The St. Johns County graduation rate increased a significant 1.1 percent over last year to 87.8 percent. This ranks among the highest in the state and reflects multiple years of steady increase.
