The District’s average composite score compares to an Ohio average composite score of 22.0.
In the past five years, the District’s average ACT composite has risen from 25.1. to 26.0.
“College readiness is a high priority for our community and an important part of the Dublin Difference. It is extremely difficult to move these scores and a nearly half point jump in one year is incredible,” said Superintendent Dr. Todd Hoadley. “We want our students to have their first choice of college or university whenever possible and high ACT scores can open those doors. Our teaching staff deserves a lot of credit for this success, as do our students and their parents.”
One of the most impressive aspects of these statistics is participation numbers and test scores continue to rise simultaneously. More than 88% of the graduating class of 2016 took the ACT test.
The ACT test is a curriculum and standards based educational and career planning tool that assesses students' academic readiness for college.
Student participation in Advanced Placement (AP) and International Baccalaureate (IB) classes in our district continues to rise and is a key reason for sustained success on the ACT exam. These high level courses are integral in preparing students for the ACT and SAT college entrance exams.
