Students earn 463 perfect scores on FSA

The School District of Lee County recently announced that there were 463 perfect scores on the 2017-2018 Florida Standards Assessment tests, which is 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.

Students in grades 3-10 took the FSA test in English language arts, which includes reading and writing skills. The FSA math test was administered in grades 3-8, and the science test was administered in grades 5-8. Students enrolled in civics, algebra I 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 third- through eighth-graders got a perfect score on the FSA English test.

Perfect score certificates for each student from the governor will be available to schools/parents in late August.
