About the School Grades

  • Florida uses School Grades to measure the overall performance of a school each year on the FCAT.
  • Each school is assigned a letter grade (A-F) based on three criteria: the overall performance on the FCAT, the percentage of eligible students who took the test, and whether or not students made progress in reading and math.
  • The School Grades are calculated by adding points earned from each of the performance criteria listed above.
