Late Thursday afternoon the Florida Department of Education released school grades for the 2017-2018 school year and when all was said and done, Flagler Schools as a district earned a  “B” grade for the 7th consecutive year.

Superintendent James Tager says, "I'm proud of all of our faculty and staff, students, and administrators. We are so close to earning that ‘A’ grade as a district and I'm confident with expected improvement in our graduation rate and acceleration numbers we are poised to push through to that ‘A’.”

A breakdown of schools in Flagler County shows Indian Trails Middle School and iFlagler Virtual School earning an “A” grade. Belle Terre Elementary, Old Kings Elementary, Flagler Palm Coast High, Matanzas High, and Imagine Town Center Charter Schools earned a “B.” Bunnell Elementary, Rymfire Elementary, Wadsworth Elementary, and Buddy Taylor Middle Schools earned a “C.” Palm Harbor Charter School was an “Incomplete.”

Adds Superintendent Tager, “We now start looking closer at the numbers behind these grades. There are bright spots on all our campuses, just as there is room for growth. By using the results of our 5-year accreditation from AdvancEd, focusing on literacy and high expectations for all students will help raise all our scores.”
