Well, here I am again, bragging about our great Brevard County Florida Schools.
I have lived in Brevard County Florida since 1975 and I currently have two teenage daughters attending West Shore Junior/Senior High School in Melbourne.
We are always hearing good news about how well our schools are performing.
Brevard County Public Schools ranked in the top six out of 67 counties in Florida in all areas except one, on the Florida Comprehensive Assessment Test. The areas include reading and math grades 4 through 10 and science in grades 5, 8, and 11. They ranked 8th on Seventh grade math.
Brevard Public schools have ranked first in the state for sixth grade math eight years in a row. Sixth graders have ranked first for reading in 5 of the past 6 years. Brevard fifth graders have taken a first place spot in science for the past four years.
The FCAT test is used as a measuring tool to determine where a student's academic strengths and weaknesses lie.
Congratulations are in order again for Brevard County Public Schools!
A warm heartfelt thank you must go out to all of the teachers and administrators that work so hard to make our schools as successful as they are today!
