All Boca Raton Public Schools Rated ‘A’ heading into 2019-20 School Year

For the second consecutive year, the School District of Palm Beach County has earned an A-rating. The School District is one of only three large urban districts in Florida to earn an A for the 2018-2019 school year.

According to preliminary school grades released July 11, 2019, by the Florida Department of Education (FLDOE), the School District outperforms the other six large urban school districts in Math Achievement. Additionally, schools throughout the county showed continued growth among students in the lowest 25 percent in both Language Arts (ELA) and Math, outperforming the state as a whole.

In Boca Raton, all schools within the City Limits have earned an ‘A’ rating.

Boca Raton Elementary School, and J.C. Mitchell Elementary School both improved to A schools this year, making all Boca Raton schools A-rated heading into the 2019-20 school year.

“Our District’s A rating, for the second consecutive year, shows that we are consistent in our pursuit of excellence and our commitment to our mission of providing a world-class education,” said Donald E. Fennoy II, Superintendent of Schools. “The fact that dozens of District-operated schools improved their ratings shows that our educators are setting high expectations, encouraging improvement, and working hard to motivate students and prepare them for post-graduate success.”

Student performance on the Florida Standards Assessments (FSA) provides the foundation for state grades, based on a school grading system adopted by the State Board of Education.

Districts and schools are rated “A” through “F” based on a percentage of points earned. Schools that did not test at least 95 percent of students received an “I” for Incomplete.
