I've also seen a word played for 200-something points. But there's a screenshot on wwfstats.com (under the "Top Big Words" tab) of JAROVIZING being played for 656 points.

The highest score one can get depends on the list of words that are acceptable, and whether the players involved are collaborating on setting up the situation for the high scoring play. 
Currently, the highest scoring word is OXYPHENBUTAZONE, with a score as high as 1688 being possible. OXYPHENBUTAZONE could be played across two triple word square, a double word square, and two triple-letter squares, with the tiles O, X, P, E, B, Z, and E played as a BINGO forming seven crosswords --  CHLOROPHYLLOUS, EXpAT, EAVESDROpPED, OVERSTUFFED, SQUABBLED, TWEEZERS and JACKHAMMERED.
