October 16, 2019 SAT scores on the rise Superintendent Dr. Mike Hickman told Board of Education members at their Oct. 8 meeting that SAT scores for the Class of 2019 showed that Mary Persons students scored an average of 1058, up from 1030 in 2018. The scores are on a scale of 1600 points. This score exceeds the 2019 state average of 1048, and the 2019 national average of 1039. Both state and national average SAT scores declined since 2018. The College Board website said over 2.2 mil- lion students in the Class of 2019 took the SAT, which was an increase of 4 percent over 2018 and was the largest group ever.

Their 1058 mean score was com- posed of 536 points out of 800 on the reading and writing portion and 522 points out of 800 on the math portion of the test.

Bleckley County had the highest average score at 1108 with 83 students taking the test, and Hous- ton County had the second test takers ‘ at Mary PersOns High average score 942 1108 965 1036 1140 965 1003 1068 993 1038 962 1012 940 1058 980 1025 highest average score with an average of 1068 and 984 students taking the test.
