Freshman students participated in the 5th Annual Wellness Day this past week, which included vision and hearing screenings. Mrs. Mundy’s Health Occupation Students worked all of the stations with assistance from Sertoma Volunteers for hearing and Rasmussen students for blood pressures for nearly 400 students.

Prior to winter break, the state of Florida released school grades for 2013-14, with Anclote High School earning a C, as determined by the newest grade calculations, which included higher expectations and increased level of rigor. The bar was raised again with these new requirements and we are pleased to announce that AHS earned the same number of raw points as the previous year. We are particularly excited about the growth in the area of Acceleration Performance from 64 to 70. Acceleration Performance includes scores from AP Exams, Dual Enrollment, and Industry Certifications. Anclote High School also increased our graduation rate from 67% to 75% – the second highest increase in the district!
