Natick High School 2012 SAT Scores – Mark Milestone

Take a bow Natick!

The 2012 SAT scores have just been released and Natick students exceeded state averages in the latest results!

The 284 Natick students who took the SATs this year achieved scores of 535 in critical reading, 563 in math, and 531 in writing.

The statewide average is 506 for reading, 523 for math, and 500 for writing.

The Department of Elementary and Secondary Education said in a prepared statement that Massachusetts public high school students have made a 12-point gain in math over the past decade, and that overall student participation in the test has increased.

                                                                          – Boston.com

While the 2012 average score fell in reading from 2011, this year’s scores contributed to a fine showing by greater Boston’s west suburban schools.

Wellesley, Weston, and Needham also marked incredibly strong performances, with these communities achieving top spots in scores for the entire state.  Wellesley led Massachusetts’ students performance “with a combined average score of 1881, according to data released Tuesday by the College Board, which administers the SATs. Acton-Boxborough Regional had the second highest overall score at 1876.”
