FCAT scores released on June 6 put Niceville High School ahead of the district and state in reading.

Students at Niceville High School received higher FCAT 2.0 reading scores than any other of the four traditional high schools in the Okaloosa School District.

The Florida Department of Education released the 2014 FCAT 2.0 Reading results on Friday morning showing Niceville High School students outperformed the district and state.  On the 2014 FCAT 2.0 Reading assessment, 82% of the 503 freshmen tested earned a level 3 or higher, up from 80% in 2013.  In addition, 78% of the 466 sophomores tested earned a level 3 or higher, up from 77% in 2013.

The 2014 district averages are 65% and 66% and the state averages are 53% and 55% for freshmen and sophomores, respectively.

“The intense work of our students, teachers and parents is reflected in increases in proficiency in reading,” said Rodney Nobles, NHS principal.

NWFSC Collegiate High School, a charter school, is the only other high school in the district showing higher marks than NHS.  The Collegiate High School, which screens students for admission, tested 68 students in reading.
