Oak Ridge Schools have announced that students are again performing well above the state average on the ACT in all areas.
In the 2016-2017 school year, the overall average composite was a 22.8. Oak Ridge students particularly excel in English on the ACT exam, at which Oak Ridge students score about 20 percent higher than the state average, a press release said.
In addition, more than 65 percent of Oak Ridge students score at or above a 21 on their average composite, as compared to the state average of 42 percent.
“Nevertheless, our staff acknowledges a need to continue to improve ACT results,” the press release said. “Overall, however, we are very proud of our students’ results, and we are looking forward to seeing the class of 2018 graduate this next spring and go on to success in college and careers.”
