The School District of Lee County is proud to announce there were 532 perfect scores on the 2018-2019 Florida Standards Assessment tests. That is 69 more than last year and 151 more than two years ago.

The new data shows 81 schools, including charters, had at least one student earn a perfect score. Lexington Middle School had the most, with 39 perfect scores. For elementary schools, Pinewoods had the most with 18 perfect tests and at the high school level Fort Myers High School had 14.

“This is a result of the rigorous and focused work our students and teachers engage in every day,” says Lexington Middle School Principal Kristin Bueno. “I am thrilled to recognize our students and for this exceptional achievement and our staff for bringing our students to truly reach their highest potential.”

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, 258 of them, were recorded on the FSA Math test for elementary and middle school students. 59 3rd through 8th graders got a perfect score on the FSA English Language Arts test.

“Congratulations to our Lee County scholars who earned a perfect score on the state assessment,” says Chief Academic Officer Dr. Jeff Spiro. “Our District is proud of you! Continue to use this accomplishment as motivation toward your own personal educational and life goals.”

Perfect Score Certificates for each student from the governor will be sent to each of the schools with perfect score students this week. Principals will be encouraged to recognize these students once the certificates arrive.
