Greenwood Lakes Middle School

Rated an "A" School by the

Florida Department of Education!


School districts across Florida anxiously awaited the anticipated release of scores for the Florida Comprehensive Assessment Test 2.0 (FCAT) and End-of-Course (EOC) exams this week. As expected, scores were released late afternoon on Thursday, June 5, 2014. Seminole County Public Schools (SCPS) is proud to announce it continues to rank as one of the top public school districts in Florida on FCAT 2.0.

“Of the data released today, SCPS is ranked #1 of the 17 largest districts in reading, mathematics and science. I am very proud of our incredible students, I am thrilled for our hard working teachers, administrators and staff and am cheering for our incredibly supportive community” stated SCPS Superintendent Dr. Walt Griffin.

In an era of increased statewide assessment and accountability, SCPS students continue to outperform the state in Reading by 10 points and 12 points in Mathematics. Students, parents, and teachers have a reason to celebrate this success and the tremendous effort put forth this year to reach for standards of “proficiency” and beyond, as defined by the State of Florida.

Part of the reason for that success is our progress based monitoring efforts, which allow us to provide personalized instruction to all our students. As many are aware, progress based monitoring is required three times a year by the state in reading. In addition, SCPS also utilizes progress based monitoring for both science and math in an effort to improve student achievement through identifying skills that help determine a student’s strengths and allow us to focus on areas that need improvement.

In particular, we can not emphasize enough the hard work of our classroom teachers who continue to deliver exceptional instruction to all students. Their work and planning translates to performance measured on mandated statewide assessments but it goes beyond just “testing.” They prepare our children for success in the 21st Century and the data overwhelmingly supports it! This is why SCPS continues to remain one of the highest achieving school districts in the state.
