Broward County Public Schools Outperforms Florida’s Other Districts

Great news for Taravella High School which is now an “A” School!

On Friday, the Florida Department of Education released 2011/12 preliminary high school grades under the revised Florida A++ Plan. Although announced as preliminary, these grades are final pending appeals, which would be submitted prior to February 2013. Elementary and middle school grades were released in late June 2011.

This year’s results highlight that 82% of Broward’s high schools earned a grade of ‘A’ or ‘B’ versus 76.3 last year, including Hallandale and Piper high schools, both improving to an A from a C last year. Flanagan, Fort Lauderdale and Taravella High Schools all also improved to an A from a B last year. All District and charter high schools earned a grade C or higher.

Broward high schools outperformed the State’s big five districts (including Hillsborough, Miami-Dade, Orange and Palm Beach) and the State with 69% receiving an A and 82% receiving an A or B.

For Elementary and Middle Schools, the grades are based entirely on Florida Comprehensive Assessment Test (FCAT) results. High school scores include other components including student performance and participation in accelerated courses, college readiness in reading and mathematics, and the overall graduation rate as well as the graduation rate of “at-risk” students. District high schools show improvement in each of these areas.

Some highlights from this year’s high school grades include:

• 22 District and five charter high schools received an A, increasing from 14 District schools and three charter schools last year.
• Four District high schools and one charter high school earned a B grade, down from 12 B grades last year.
• Six District high schools and one charter high school received a grade of C, up from five District schools and down from two charter schools last year.
• No high schools received a D or F grade.

“I applaud the hard work and efforts of our students and staff. We see progress and opportunities to improve,” said Superintendent Robert W. Runcie. “We will continue our work and mission to ensure that our students reach their highest potential.”
