Student performance continues to climb under Superintendent


Recently released test scores for the 2023-2024 school year show continued upward movement for Indian River County students in all subject areas.

Students achieved the highest percentages of level 3 or above scores since the 2014-2015 school year in subjects such as English Language Arts, Math and Science.

“Performance levels range from 1 to 5, with Level 1 as the lowest and Level 5 as the highest,” according to Florida Department of Education. “For all assessments, Level 3 indicates satisfactory performance.”

“For the second year in a row, our school district realized unprecedented levels of success and growth,” said Superintendent of Schools Dr. David Moore. “Results of our Spring Assessments eclipsed the phenomenal results SDIRC experienced last year, exceeding state results in all content areas and matching state performance in Civics.  I am incredibly proud of our students, teachers, and staff for their hard work and dedication. These results reflect our commitment to academic excellence and the success of every student in our district,” 

During the 2022-2023 school year, SDIRC was one of only 16 out of  67 Florida school districts earning an “A” rating. It was the first time since 2015 that the district received an “A,” and Moore said he intends to maintain the score and continue to improve performance across the board.

Here are some of this year’s scores for Indian River School District students: 63 percent of 3rd graders got 3 or above on their ELA test; 69 percent scored above 3 in math with 30 percent getting 4 or above; 65 percent of fifth grade science students received a 3 or above.

SDIRC students outscored other districts on the Treasure Coast.
