WEST PALM BEACH- The Palm Beach School District is one of only 7 large districts in Florida to receive an ‘A’ grade for 2022 according to the Florida Department of Education.

“I am incredibly proud of our students, teachers, school administrators, and support staff for persevering through conditions that were unimaginable just a few years ago,” Palm Beach School District Superintendent Mike Burke said in a statement.

Palm Beach County has 71 schools with an ‘A’ grade, 40 have a ‘B,’ 68 are ‘C’ rated, and nine have a ‘D.’

Only one school, Bright Futures Academy in Palm Beach Gardens, ranked an ‘F’ rating.

Martin County saw an overall drop from an ‘A’ to a ‘B’ in this year’s rankings while St. Lucie and Indian River counties held onto their ‘B’ rating from 2021.

The Department of Education bases the annual rankings on several factors including student performance, academic achievement, graduation rates, and successful completion of career and education acceleration programs
