Badger’s class of 2012 excelled in ACT testing
LAKE GENEVA Badger High School’s graduating class of 2012 exceeded state averages in every area of ACT testing, according to the recently released ACT Profile Report. In addition, the average composite score of 23 is the highest ACT composite average of any class ever at Badger. The report shows that in all areas, the percent of Badger High School students ready for college-level course work exceeds national averages, as well.
The ACT test is a curriculum- and standards-based educational and career planning tool that assesses students' academic readiness for college. Test scores reflect what students have learned throughout high school and provide colleges and universities with information for recruiting, advising, placement, and retention.
Of 292 seniors, 183 took the ACT Exam, or 63%.
This is the fifth year in a row, since the class of 2008, that Badger’s composite ACT Score has exceeded both state and national composites.
“The improvement can be attributed to a number of things including ACT type questions being used by teachers throughout the school year, our ACT Prep class which started two years ago, and improvements in the overall curriculum of many classes,” said Bob Kopydlowski, Principal. “Higher ACT scores show us that our students are better prepared for college in whatever they choose to study. Not all of our students will go to college, but we want them prepared in case they do decide to go.”
