It’s Academic

The 2017 Public High School Report Card

School pride runs deep in Greater Orlando and for good reason  We have some of the top learning institutions right here in our backyard. With kids preparing to shuffle back to classrooms next month, ready to take on a new academic year, we once again are examining how our public high schools stack up in several key areas. Using information gleaned from the Florida Department of Education and the A.P. Course Ledger, we’ve examined public high schools in Orange, Osceola and Seminole counties to see how they measure up in categories like average SAT scores, graduation rates and more. We’ve also talked to local educators and politicians to get a feel for the impact that H.B. 7069—the sweeping, controversial education bill signed into law last month—will have on our community. No doubt about it; we’ve done our homework.
