Pasco County schools saw school grade improvements with increases in the number of A and B schools and decreases in the number of schools under state review. These improvements reflect the dedication of Pasco County students and teachers this year, as the district’s grade remains a B.
Fifteen schools improved by one letter grade. Bexley, Lake Myrtle, and Wiregrass elementary schools improved from B to A; Deer Park, Gulf Trace, Marlowe, Pine View and San Antonio elementary schools improved from a C to a B; and Anclote, Calusa, Chasco and Richey elementary schools improved from a D to a C.
Wendell Krinn Technical High School scored an A in its opening school year.
“I am proud of these positive strides, and I cannot thank our faculty, school-based administrators and staff, and district administrators and staff enough for their passionate drive to do what is best for students,” stated Superintendent Kurt Browning.
