Washington State’s students ranked near the top in ACT scores again! Despite all of the bad publicity our schools receive, our students have once again performed very well.
The SAT scores were high as well. In fact, Washington’s “average scores were the highest among states in which more than 30 percent of eligible students took the test.”
Granted, only 17% of our total graduates took the ACT, but that seems to be the norm for the top states on the list, especially since the SAT is a much more popular test in this state. Washington students also outscored the national average on every section of the exam.
