Although 2009 FCAT scores show mixed results, overall, East County students outperformed the state average in most areas, according to results released by the Florida Department of Education last week.

The East County Observer examined results of test-taking students in third, eighth and 10th grades — the highest grade levels tested in elementary, middle and high schools, respectively.

More than half of schools scored lower on the FCAT than last year. However, most of those schools still outperformed the state average. Eight of 15 schools performed worse than they did on the 2008 FCAT, with Myakka City Elementary dropping the most at 31.3%. Two of three middle schools and both high schools declined from last year. At the high school level, Lakewood Ranch's sophomores outperformed the state average in all subjects. Tara Elementary showed the greatest year-over-year gain at 18.4%.

Nine of 15 East County schools scored higher than the state average in all subjects. Five schools fell below the state average in one subject. Only Myakka City Elementary scored below the state average in two subjects.
