Anderson ACT scores, graduation rate impressive

The Anderson County School system’s composite ACT score for this year increased to 20.3, up from 19.3 a year ago and above the state average of 19.9.

School leaders learned about the scores last week during a School Board retreat. The ACT is a standardized test that gauges a student’s college-readiness and the top score a student can earn is a “36.”

School Board members were also informed that the system’s high school graduation rate for this year was 97.8%, well ahead of the state graduation rate of 87.8%, and ranking among the top 10 percent of all high schools in Tennessee.
