CCSD improves overall SAT composite score from last year

  • Thursday, September 26, 2013

SAT scores have been released, and Charleston County School District (CCSD) students continue to outperform their state peers in Critical Reading and Writing and hold steady in Math. The Critical Reading score was equal to that of the national average for public schools and slightly lower than the national average when comparing all students in all schools.

The overall composite score increased five points from last year and CCSD was the only local school district to improve from last year and the county’s overall participation number (65 percent) is among the top ten districts in the state.

Burke High School (+ 43), North Charleston High School (+ 99) and Stall

High School (+ 41) all saw significant improvements in their overall composite scores from last year.

“I am encouraged with the improvements we continue to see as a district because it demonstrates that the hard work and commitment to Vision 2016 is making a difference. Couple this news with the improvement we made in the 2012 graduation rate, and the fact our seniors just earned a record $50 million in scholarships this past year and it’s clear – we are increasing the number of CCSD students ready for post-secondary education,” said Superintendent Nancy J. McGinley.
