The older students also scored well on state and national assessments:
In math, our middle and high school scores were significantly higher than the national average, reaching the 71st percentile in the tenth grade. These scores rank us number one in grade 10 math when compared to all our surrounding school districts. This is something we can all be proud of.
A 3.5 score or higher is one of the requirements at the state level to be deemed a high performing school. In writing all but one of our high schools had a composite score of 3.5 or higher, three (3) of these with a score of 4.0 or higher.
And in reading, our secondary students met or exceeded the State's high performance standards, at Levels 3, 4, and 5.
The district scores in the FCAT science are above the State average in all three grade levels tested. The ninth graders scored especially well as their scores ranked them as the 9th highest of the 67 school districts.
Pasco is now the 13th largest school district in the State of Florida and the 92nd largest in the nation. There are a total of 66 schools: 37 elementary schools, 11 middle schools, 9 high schools, 4 specialized education centers and 5 charter schools.
