PSJHS earns an ‘A’; maintains district streak

But with the ‘A’ from Port St. Joe Jr./Sr. High School the odds got much shorter.

“The grades average out to a ‘B’ so we should be able to maintain our designation as a high-performing district,” Norton said.

The number of Florida high schools and combination schools earning School Recognition awards remained steady with 281 schools eligible based on the preliminary grades issued today. Recognition bonuses are given to eligible schools that earn an “A” grade, increase their letter grade by at least one grade, or maintain the same grade after having improved at least two letter grades in the prior year. The awards will be sent to all Florida schools after the high school grade appeals are finalized next year.


Detailed information on the 2013 high school grades and a press packet with graphic displays of results are available on the department's website at School Grades.
