The percentage of Flagler County students getting scores of three or higher was scored higher than the state average in Florida State Assessment English language arts and math tests at all grade levels.

“While there is always room for improvement,” Superintendent of Schools Jacob Oliva said in a school district news release, “what’s encouraging is, in English Language Arts, we have exceeded the state average of Level 3 and above at every grade level. In math, we either met or exceeded the grade level state average for students scoring 3 and above at every level.”

Scores on the Florida State Assessment tests are graded from one to five, with one being the lowest score and five the highest. 

Flagler County students also made gains in civics and eighth grade science end of course exams.
