Martin County Students Earn 122 Perfect Scores on Florida Standards Assessments

The Martin County School District is proud to announce that 122 students earned a perfect score on at least one Florida Standards Assessment (FSA) or End-of-Course (EOC) exam during the 2018-2019 school year.

 

Last spring, students in grades 3-10 took the English Language Arts (ELA) FSA, while students in grades 3-8 took the Math FSA.  The Statewide Science Exam (SSA) was administered to students in grades 5 and 8, and students enrolled in Civics, U.S. History, Algebra I and Geometry participated in EOC exams for those subjects.

 

Data released in August by the Florida Department of Education indicated that 20 District-operated schools had at least one student earn a perfect score last school year.  Hidden Oaks Middle School had the most, with 46 perfect scores.  Palm City Elementary and Pinewood Elementary tied for the highest number of perfect scores at the elementary level with seven, while Jensen Beach High School topped the high school list with 12.

 

 Ten students earned perfect scores in more than one subject area:

“I am so proud of each of these students for earning a perfect score on at least one of their FSA or EOC exams,” Superintendent Laurie J. Gaylord shared.  “Earning a perfect score on these assessments is a tremendous accomplishment.  I am proud of our students for their hard work and commitment to their education, and of our teachers, administrators and support employees for working tirelessly to ensure that all Martin County students are educated for success.”

 

Students who earned perfect scores attended a recognition ceremony at Martin County High School on October 2, 2019, in honor of their outstanding achievements.
