As far as I know, most schools actually don't put a lot of emphasis on reading speed and more focus on comprehension. So if you have high comprehension they may not have realized how long it took you to actually read something. See, if you can read orally at a normal pace, which you can, they would have no idea that your internal reading speed was the same.
I believe the average person is capable of reading faster than they can speak, so when you read out loud, your reading speed is capped at whatever speed you're speaking at.
For example on that Sprintz thing, I can read at 700, and comfortably at 550, but I CANNOT talk that fast. Not even close. My talking speed would be more around 300, like you said you were at.
I'm not a specialist here so I can't actually diagnose you with anything, but if your reading speed is capped at your verbalization speed, you might want to do a bit more research on it because I don't believe that is normal. It might also just be a habit you can learn to break, like touch typing vs. hen-peck typing. I'm not sure.
