High Marks for Washington Students

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.

    In Mesa County, we were quite happy that our ACT scores were better than the national average. Colorado is one of only three states that requires all of its juniors to take the test.

    We start school with student on Monday. The summer that seemed so long at the end of last year has come to an end.

    JVP, good luck going back to school!

    I wish our state paid for every student to take the SAT or ACT, maybe as the state test. It could open doors for kids while using a test with easily comparable results.
