Olympic Heights High School Drops To A "B", Other Boca Schools Keep "A" Rating

BOCA RATON, FL (BocaNewsNow.com) — The State Department of Education has a funny way of releasing information late on Fridays. For fans of the “West Wing,” Friday is “Take Out The Trash Day.” 

While the Friday public release may make sense when you look at some of the grades, Boca fared well overall — the  only bad news in the latest school rankings is focused on Olympic Heights, which dropped from its “A” rating in 2015 to a “B” in 2016. Everything else looks good in Boca. Spanish River High and West Boca High– yes, the school that ousted its principal last year amidst a plagiarism scandal — are both solidly “A” schools. Waters Edge Elementary, Calusa Elementary and Morikami Elementary retain their “A” grades, and unless we’ve misread or missed a school, ALL Boca Middle Schools are now “A” schools.
