LOCAL SCHOOLS WITH HIGHEST ACT/SAT SCORES
The Ohio Department of Education compiles the mean scores from the ACT and SAT from the graduating classes of school districts and individual schools across the state, and includes those scores on its annual report card.
The highest possible ACT score is 36; the scores noted here are composites of the ACT subjects tested.
To get the SAT mean scores, the ODE included a composite of math and critical reading scores but did not factor in the more recent writing portion of the test. With this metric, the highest score possible is 1,600.
These are the Miami Valley schools with the highest mean scores on these college admission tests, for the 2011-12 graduating class:
ACT: Oakwood, (26); Bellbrook, Cedarville, Centerville, William Mason and Yellow Springs/McKinney (25); Lakota East, Lakota West, Arcanum, Tippecanoe, Brookville, Kings and Springboro (24).
SAT: Troy (1,186), Kings (1,178), Talawanda (1,168), Springboro (1,162), Lebanon (1,158), Tippecanoe (1,150), Bellbrook (1,148), Centerville (1,148), Oakwood (1,142), Yellow Springs/McKinney (1,136) and William Mason (1,136) high schools.
