SAT scores at most Atlanta high schools trail the state average, according to new 2016 test results released today.
Only two Atlanta high schools had combined scores above Georgia’s average of 1459: Grady and North Atlanta high schools. Grady and North Atlanta also had some of the district’s highest rates of students taking the SAT.
Those scores are for the “traditional” version of the SAT. Some student took a new version of the SAT. The College Board did not release school or district-level results for the new SAT because of the smaller number of students who took that test version.
