For the 5th consecutive year, Greeneville City high school students scored higher than the state on the American College Test (ACT) in all subjects. Greeneville City also scored higher than the national composite ACT score in 2016. Results from the ACT serve as a critical measure to indicate college and career readiness.
In 2016, Greeneville City is one of only 12 districts who earned an average composite score at or above 21, and only 45 school districts had an average ACT composite score above the state average of 19.4.
“Our school community can be proud of the fact that we are one of 12 school systems in Tennessee that have an average score above a 21,” said Dr. Jeff Moorhouse, Director of Schools. “I am really proud of the administrators, teachers, and students at GHS for their concentrated efforts to improve future readiness for college and career.”
Beginning in 2009, all Tennessee students, regardless of their post-high school plans, are required to take the ACT assessment. Greeneville City tested 185 students who received an average composite score of 21.8.
