Destin Elementary students achieved outstanding success on the third grade FCAT exams and the fourth grade Florida Writes exam. Our students moved up 18 points on the third grade math FCAT while maintaining high scores in third grade reading and fourth grade writing. DES is among the highest performing schools in Okaloosa County, with 82% of students proficient in Math and 80% proficient in Reading. Individual test scores will be available online thru Parent Star. We are proud of our dedicated teachers who inspire, motivate and teach Destin students how to succeed in school and life.
