Florida high schools earned more A's this year than ever before, with 223 campuses statewide earning top marks on the state's annual A-to-F report card, the Florida Department of Education announced this morning.

The percentage of high schools earning A's or B's hit 82 percent, a sharp increase from a decade ago when only 40 percent did. The number of F-rated high schools dropped to one from two last year.

Central Florida schools mirrored the state, with Orange County schools posting almost all A's and B's. East River and West Orange high schools earned their first-ever A's.

"I am pleased to announce that ERHS is an "A" rated high school!!!!" read a message posted on East River's Facebook page.
