DCSD high school juniors rock the ACT

CASTLE ROCK- Proving that excellence in education lives in Douglas County, DCSD students made a name for themselves in the 2016 ACT college entrance exam. Results released today show an increase in DCSD’s average composite score, which is now 22.5.

DCSD’s score last year was 21.9. The state’s 2016 average composite score is 20.4.

The ACT exam is taken by all high school juniors in Colorado.

Next year, juniors will take the SAT instead of the ACT as a result of a change enacted by the Colorado Department of Education.
