Henry County schools report rising ACT scores

Officials with the Henry County School System are reporting that seven out of its ten high schools have increased or maintained their composite scores on the ACT, one of the primary standardized tests used nationally for college admissions.

In addition, multiple schools showed growth in the four tested subject areas — English language arts, math, reading, and science. Locust Grove, Luella, McDonough, Ola, and Woodland high schools all increased their composite scores this year by an average of 0.4 points, while 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, according to officials.
