"A” Rated Schools Since 2004

Continuing the 1 mill will enable Sarasota county schools to continue offering extra educational opportunities. The extra mill is a major reason why Sarasota County schools are at the top.

Sarasota county school district has been “A” Rated since 2004, when ratings began.  We can take pride in our children’s academic achievements. Our students rank in the top five highest Florida Standards Assessment (FSA) scores in the state. Our district is one of only two districts that have been continuously rated an “A” district. What’s more, in standardized testing such as the SAT, Sarasota County students outperformed the nation and state.  

Since 2002, Sarasota County voters have approved an extra 1 mill of funding that has made critical differences in student performance. 

The 1 mill also allows an additional 30 minutes of education every day, helping graduate top rated students with the science, technology, and math skills needed for college or to be competitive in the job market.

The additional funding allows the Sarasota school district to continue offering art, drama and music. Sarasota County schools are recognized for outstanding arts education by the John F. Kennedy Center for the Performing Arts, and the National School Boards Association.

Continuing the 1 mill will enable Sarasota to keep offering extra educational opportunities.  The extra mill is a major reason why Sarasota County schools are at the top.
