BOCA RATON, FL (BocaNewsNow.com) (Copyright © 2022 MetroDesk Media, LLC) — Not that it’s a competition, but Palm Beach County Schools did better in performance tests and evaluations than neighboring school districts in Broward County, Martin County, St. Lucie, and Okeechobee during the just-completed school year. Palm Beach and Miami-Dade were the only two of the seven largest school districts in Florida to earn an “A” grade.

The Palm Beach County School District late Thursday released the “executive summary” of how each school performed, and how the school district performed overall. The metrics are based primarily on the the Florida Standards Assessment with a mix of other factors considered by the State Board of Education.

While most Boca Raton-area schools maintained “A” ratings, Whispering Pines Elementary dropped to a B, according to the report. Whispering Pines serves many of the new communities on Lyons Road near Clint Moore.

The School District issued this statement: “On July 7, 2022, The Florida Department of Education (FLDOE) announced that the School District of Palm Beach County maintained its “A” rating for the 2021-2022 school year. Among Florida’s seven large school Districts, only two, Palm Beach and Miami,  earned a letter grade of “A.” SDPBC also outperformed all neighboring districts, including Broward, Martin, St. Lucie, Indian River, and Okeechobee. 

85% of high schools were rated “A” or “B”, an increase of 17 percentage points from FY19. For the 2021-2022 school year, there are no F-rated, District-operated schools. 

While the great majority of schools received their letter grade, seven District-operated schools are still listed by the State as “I” for incomplete.  

There are several reasons for being listed by the State as incomplete including a participation rate below 95%, student exams that may still be unaccounted for, or other unresolved matters. The District is currently working with the State to determine the cause in each case.”
