The School District of Lee County is proud to announce there were 463 perfect scores on the 2017-2018 Florida Standards Assessment tests. That’s 82 more than last year.

The new data shows 79 schools, including charters, had at least one student earn a perfect score. Lexington Middle School had the most, with 33 perfect scores. For elementary schools, Pinewoods had the most with 29 perfect tests and at the high school level Fort Myers High School had 14.

“I am so proud of the students, teachers and staff for providing quality and rigorous learning experiences that truly bring our students to reach their highest potential,” says Lexington Middle School Principal Kristin Bueno. “Our teachers are passionate about their work, and all they put in each day brings about these exceptional results with students.”

Students in Grades 3 - 10 took the FSA test in English Language Arts (which includes both reading and writing skills). The FSA Math test was administered in Grades 3 – 8, and the Science test was administered in Grades 5 and 8. Students enrolled in Civics, Algebra 1 and Geometry in spring 2018 participated in the state’s EOC exams for those subjects.

Most of the perfect scores, 200 of them, were recorded on the FSA Math test for elementary and middle school students. 103 3rd through 8th graders got a perfect score on the FSA English Language Arts test.

“Congratulations to all the students who received a perfect score on their FSA test,” exclaimed Superintendent Dr. Greg Adkins. “I am extremely proud of each of their accomplishments. They have demonstrated what it means to reach your highest potential.”

Perfect Score Certificates for each student from the governor will be available to schools/parents in late August. Schools will be encouraged to recognize these students once the certificates arrive.
