Five of Georgia's Top 10 highest scoring schools for ACT are in Fulton County

Recently released ACT scores put Fulton County's high schools among the highest-scoring in the state, with five schools listed among the Top 10 in Georgia. cid:image004.png@01D1BFEB.138702D0

Northview High School had the second highest ACT score in the state for 2016, with Johns Creek High School following as the third highest. Chattahoochee High School, Alpharetta High School and Cambridge High School were ranked fifth, sixth and seventh, respectively.  

Fulton's overall composite scores remain high at 23.2, a 0.3 increase from last year. Comparatively, Georgia's overall composite scores increased slightly to 21.1 from 21.0 last year and the national composite score fell slightly to 20.8. Scored on a scale of 1 to 36, with 36 being the highest possible score, the test is taken voluntarily by students throughout the year.

The ACT continues to grow in popularity for Fulton students as well as for students across Georgia and the nation.  Fulton has seen a 17% increase in the number of test-takers in the past five years to almost 3,700 students this year. More than 57% of Fulton's 2016 graduates took the ACT.
 

Fulton County also has seen an increase in the percent of students meeting the ACT College Readiness Benchmarks in all subject areas measured. Forty-three percent of Fulton's seniors demonstrated college-readiness in all four areas whereas 27% of Georgia students and 26% of students across the nation demonstrated this same college-readiness. When compared to last year, Fulton increased by three percentage points, Georgia increased by one percentage point, and the nation decreased by two percentage points.

Similar to the SAT, the ACT is a test commonly used for college admission and placement. It measures English, math, reading and science proficiency, with an optional writing section, whereas the SAT measures only math, reading and writing.

Individual school results, as well as five-year district trends, are posted here. Scores are only reported for schools with 10 or more students taking the test during the 2015-2016 school year.
