West Boca High Receives "A" Grade From State

BOCA RATON, FL (BocaNewsNow.com) — West Boca Raton High School — which has eluded an A grade in the past — is ending the year with a report card that is worthy of hanging on a refrigerator.

West Boca joins Boca Raton Community and Spanish River High School as recipients of the top grade from the Florida Department of Education.

From Palm Beach County Schools:

Eighty percent of Palm Beach County’s district-operated and charter high schools earned A and B grades from the Florida Department of Education – an increase of 18 percentage points from 2013, despite tougher requirements for schools to earn top grades.

Palm Beach County outperformed the state in the number of A- and B-rated high schools. Throughout Florida, 71.1 percent of high schools earned A’s and B’s, compared with 80 percent in Palm Beach County.”This is a proud day for the School District of Palm Beach County. The majority of our high schools were able to raise or maintain their grades, even as the state raised the bar,” said Superintendent E. Wayne Gent. “We know that we can always do better, and our focus continues to be on meeting the needs of all of our students and continuing to provide a world-class education in every one of our schools.”

Five district-operated schools – Santaluces High School in Lantana, Seminole Ridge High School in Loxahatchee, Wellington High School in Wellington, West Boca Raton High School in Boca Raton, and William T. Dwyer High School in Palm Beach Gardens — improved to A’s. Two district-operated schools – John I. Leonard High School in Greenacres and Royal Palm Beach High School in Royal Palm Beach -brought their grades up to B’s.

No district-operated high schools were given F’s, though one charter high school did receive an F from the state.
