BIG DAY!!! 2017 School Grades Are Out And There Is Reason For Some Celebration!

Grades are in!! Have you seen the results of Florida schools?  Where did your school land?

Overall Florida, and South Florida in particular, made some real progress.  New testing standards for common core brought some hiccups in the last few years, so everyone has been anticipating the outcome of the 2017 tests. I don’t think anyone expected these results!

Kudos to the hard work of teachers, administrators, parents and students.

Here are some highlights:

  • Miami-Dade and Palm Beach Counties have no “F” rated traditional schools
  • Broward went from 10 “F’ rated schools to two
  • All three district grew their number of “A” rated schools
  • Elementary Schools saw the largest gains


  • Half of the region’s poorest schools got the same letter grade; 11% did worse
