									                                                 Average Core ACT Scores for Graduates
The American College test is designed for students who plan to attend college. The scores reflect those higher order thinkin g skills
required to do successful work during the freshman year of college. The ACT scores are reported by core and non -core scores. The
students with core scores reflect those who have had four years of English, three years of Math and Science, and two years of Social
Studies.

The staff and students believe we can improve our performance significantly on the ACT by implementing several changes that w ill affect
our system. The actions by staff and students include the following: teachers will stress reading strategies in classes; so ftware dealing
with ACT test-taking skills will be installed in the high school computer lab for all students’ use; ACT test -taking session will be offered
after school for interested students; teacher training sessions on how to achieve ACT success have been offered and attended; Super
Saturday will be provided for students on how to succeed on the ACT; implement an ACT unit in College Survival class; all tea chers will
enrich their regular lessons in all subject areas that directly relate to ACT success; curriculum will be reviewed with ACT r esults in mind
and modified accordingly; an ACT tutoring class has also been implemented during the regular school day.
