WCPS’ juniors once again demonstrated significant improvement on the ACT, which is given annually as part of Kentucky’s state assessment. This year’s district composite score of 20.9 is the highest ever recorded by WCPS’ juniors, surpassing the previous high of 20.5 during the last school year. This is also the fourth consecutive year that WCPS ACT scores have surpassed the state average by nearly a point or more. The report released by the Kentucky Department of Education shows that WCPS students tested above the state average in all College Readiness Benchmark content areas with English, Math, Reading, and Science once again above the state average. For many students, the ACT results may determine which college they attend, their college programming, or even how much scholarship money they earn.
“One of our top priorities in Warren County Public Schools is to ensure student achievement, and our most recent ACT results validate the tremendous effort by our students, teachers, support staff, and administrators,” stated Superintendent Rob Clayton. “Our staff continues to refine their instructional processes in the classroom in order to ensure high levels of student engagement, and I could not be more proud of their efforts. It is difficult to move the needle forward on ACT results year after year, but our students and staff continue to find a way to accomplish this. It is remarkable that each junior class finds a way to surpass the performance of the class before them year after year.”
WCPS takes great pride in the success of its students and educators, and we want parents to fully understand what these results actually mean.
