VIGO CO., Ind. (WTHI) - SAT scores increased in some Wabash Valley high schools and decreased slightly in others according to data released Monday by the College Board, which administers the yearly test for college-bound high-schoolers.
According to those figures, the average overall score among students in the Vigo County School Corporation rose from 1455 in the 2010-2011 school year to 1470 in the 2011-2012 school year.
Within Vigo County, overall scores rose at North High School from 1462 to 1473 and at South High School from 1476 to 1507. At West Vigo High School, scores dipped from 1362 to 1359, while the number of students taking the exam rose.
Deputy Superintendent Karen Goeller said the numbers show improvement, but she also warns that test scores are not the only measure of how prepared students are for college or of their chances of getting into the school of their choice.
"A myriad of factors go into that college application," Goeller said. "So not only is an SAT score important, but also the courses that a student has taken. That's perhaps the most important factor in many decisions for college admissions."
