Advanced Placement (AP) and International Baccalaureate ®(IB)

Advanced Placement (AP) and International Baccalaureate (IB) are rigorous programs dedicated to educational excellence. AP and IB courses provide a challenging educational program that prepares students for selective universities and colleges. AP exams are scored on a scale of 1-5; IB exams are scored on a scale of 1-7.

Dual Enrollment

This measure provides the percentage of students (11th and 12th grade students) enrolled in dual credit / dual enrollment classes during the school year who obtain a grade that provides college credit (grade of C or better).

Number of students enrolled in Dual Enrollment Courses 43
Percent of students enrolled in Dual Enrollment Courses 4.4%

The SAT

The SAT is a standardized test often used in the college admissions process. Its' aim is to assess the student's readiness for college. The current test consists of two 800 point sections testing Evidence-Based Reading and Writing (ERW) and Mathematics. The highest composite score on the SAT is 1600. Most students take the test, which is offered several times per year, during their junior or senior year of high school. The district and state averages are included for comparison. State averages for SAT data are based on regular public schools and do not include private schools in the state.

Our School 55.9 554 544 1098
Our District 56.2 530 505 1035
Statewide 44.8 543 520 1064
The highest composite score on the SAT is 1600. For each of the two sections of the test, the highest score is 800.

Note: The new SAT data (as of 2017) cannot be compared to that of previous years because the redesigned SAT is a different assessment using a different scale.


State Goals
