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 state released high school grades today based on 2010-11 FCAT scores, as well as graduation rate, participation and performance in accelerated programs, and college readiness skills.
Out of the district’s seven high schools, two received an “A,” Nease and Ponte Vedra High Schools. Four received a grade of “B,” Bartram Trail, Creekside, Pedro Menendez and St. Augustine High Schools and St. Johns Technical High School received an “M.”
“I want to congratulate all of our students for their efforts and determination,” said Superintendent Joseph Joyner. “I am very proud of all of our high schools for their outstanding results. When we look at our success it always comes down to the hard work of our students, quality teachers, and dedicated parents and support staff. We are also fortunate to have outstanding leadership through our principals that maintain high expectations for all students.”
“I remain exceptionally proud of staff and students at Bartram Trail, Creekside, Pedro Menendez and St. Augustine High Schools,” he added. “All of them earned enough points to receive an “A”, but automatic triggers placed in sub populations of students caused these four schools to receive a “B” grade.”
St. Johns Technical High School received an “M” which signifies maintaining standards. St. Johns Technical High School is designated as an alternative school which observes a different rating system than traditional high schools. Improvement in reading and math gains for the 2010-11 school year were attributed to this grade.
