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.”

Needham Real Estate: Tear Downs Make Way For New Construction

New construction and the associated tear down of older and smaller homes is alive and well in Needham.

For the eight month period from 1/1/2011 to 8/31/2011 twenty nine new construction single family homes were sold in Needham with an average sale price of $1,312,956. The 29 homes represented 14.3% of the total number of homes sold.

For the same eight month period in 2012 the number of new construction single family home sales increased by 20.7% to 35 homes. The total number of homes also increased proportionally so that new construction represented 14.8% of sales.

The average sale price of new construction homes and the corresponding per square foot price remained stable in Needham for this period.

Fast forward 30 years and at this rate, Needham may not have any smaller/older homes left to tear down.

What do you think about this trend?
