Wakulla School District students placed top ten in the state in 14 of 16 areas tested on the 2014 Florida Comprehensive Assessment Test (FCAT) state assessments in Reading, Math, and Science. Rankings are based on the percent of students who score proficient, which is on grade level at a Level 3, or above grade level at Levels 4 and 5.

Overall, 4th grade Math scores were at 70% on or above grade level compared to the state average of 63%. Eighth grade Math scores were 63% on or above grade level compared to the state average of 47%.
Another big leap were 10th grade Reading scores at 65% on or above grade level compared to the state average of 55%.
Wakulla students ranked first in the region consisting of Wakulla, Leon, Calhoun, Liberty, Taylor, Jefferson, Franklin, Gadsden, and Madison on six of the areas tested and were in the top three for 15 of 16 areas tested.
States Superintendent Bobby Pearce, “Wakulla students, teachers, staff, administrators and parents are to be commended for their hard work. We are very pleased with these results and go forward into 2014-2015 with renewed enthusiasm to continue to educate our children at the highest level.”

Wakulla County School District also has been named an “Academically High Performing District” by the state for the seventh consecutive year based on last year’s district FCAT point total, good financial audit, and adherence to the class size requirements.
