BREVARD - This year's Florida Comprehensive Assessment Test, or FCAT, was one of the most rigorous yet.

But that didn't faze Brevard's sixth graders, who led the state with the highest math scores.

The county's sixth graders had the highest percentage of students scoring at Level 3 or above on the FCAT. Students scoring at Levels 3, 4 and 5 on the FCAT are achieving at or above grade level, according to the Florida Department of Education.

Seventy-two percent of Brevard's sixth graders scored at or above Level 3 on the FCAT, while the state average was 53 percent.

"Our students and teachers are to be commended for their resilience and effort in the face of differing content and testing expectations," said Brian Binggeli, superintendent for Brevard Public Schools, in a news release.

Additionally, all of Brevard's grade levels that were tested, from third to tenth grades, outperformed the state average in every one of the FCAT's areas in reading, science and math.

In reading, Brevard's sixth-grade students scored 15 percentage points more than the state's average, with 72 percent scoring at Level 3 or higher.
