Maintaining the success that Geneva High School’s students traditionally display on the ACT, Geneva’s graduating class of 2016 achieved an average ACT composite score of 24.2, according to numbers released this week by ACT.
This impressive average far outpaces the state and national composite averages, which for 2016 are both 20.8.
“Geneva School District is dedicated to helping its students become self-directed learners, adaptable thinkers, and effective communicators. Students’ high scores on the ACT are an example of the positive outcomes of developing such skills,” said Superintendent Dr. Kent Mutchler. “We are very thankful to our PK-12 staff, parents, and community for the value they place on education in Geneva and for their continuous support of our students to help each and every one succeed.”
Geneva High School has administered the ACT to juniors since 2001. Due to a recent decision by the Illinois Board of Education to stop funding the ACT, in 2017, Geneva High School will begin administering the SAT instead of the ACT.
