All Polk County high schools finished the year’s reports with a C or better, Lake Wales High School maintained its C rating, the same as last year’s, according to the state Department of Education rankings released Dec. 18. Ten high schools got a C with only three gaining top marks. Lakeland area high schools got A’s while Ridge Community High School received a B, Haines City High School received a C, losing ground from the B it received earlier. Fort Meade and Frostproof maintained their C grades.
The high school scores are based half on FCAT scores and the remainder on an extensive list of achievements such as graduation rates, at-risk graduation rates, certifications obtained, student scores on both International Baccalaureate and Advanced Placement scores, SAT and ACT scores.
