Henry County high school students are holding their own or improving their ACT scores, according to recently released results of the national standardized test.
School officials in the south metro Atlanta community said that seven out of 10 high schoolers in the district increased or maintained their composite scores while multiple schools showed growth in the four tested subject areas.
“The latest results from the ACT provide another example of the positive growth trajectory our students and district are currently on,” said Josh Hinton, chairman of the Henry County Board of Education. “We are proud to share this good news with our community thanks to the hard work of our students and staff.”
Locust Grove, Luella, McDonough, Ola, and Woodland high schools all increased their composite scores by an average of 0.4 points. Dutchtown and Eagle’s Landing high schools maintained their scores from the previous year.
High schools across the district showed the greatest gains this year in the area of reading, the district said.
