Greenville County schools recognized for performance on ACT and SAT exams

Eight Greenville County high schools were recognized by the SC Department of Education for their improvement efforts on either the ACT or SAT college entrance exams.

In their second year, the ACT/SAT Performance Improvement Awards (ASPI) were created to salute schools that showed high performance on the ACT or SAT and those that had rapid or continuous improvement in their scores. Recipients will receive banners and certificates of achievement as part of the state’s SAT/ACT Improvement Program.

The award banners for the schools indicate Summa Cum Laude, Magna Cum Laude and Cum Laude for the level of award given. Awards for high performance go to schools whose average composite score exceeds the national average, whose improvement in composite score exceeds the state average, or whose score is in the top tenth percentile in the state.

Improvement awards go to schools whose score exceeds the state average and level of significant improvement, and show improvement over a three-year period.
