The district earned a total of 594 points, 18 points ahead of the second-ranked district.
“I continue to be amazed by the commitment of our students, teachers and school administrators, particularly given the fact that this level of performance was achieved with the new more rigorous FCAT 2.0 in place,” said Superintendent Dr. Joseph Joyner. “St. Johns County Schools’ grades and its top ranking in the state is an indication of everyone’s hard work. Even with this outstanding performance, conversations are already focused on how to become even better.”
Thirteen elementary schools retained their “A” status, including Cunningham Creek Elementary, Durbin Creek Elementary, Hartley Elementary, Hickory Creek Elementary, R. B. Hunt Elementary, Julington Creek Elementary, Mason Elementary, Mill Creek Elementary, Ocean Palms Elementary, Osceola Elementary, Ponte Vedra-Palm Valley/ Rawlings Elementary, South Woods Elementary and Wards Creek Elementary.
“Once again, I am very proud of the work that has been accomplished in our district. Everyone works so hard and it’s gratifying to see that translate into excellent marks,” he added.
