All tenth grade students took the PSAT to help prepare them for the SAT. This precursor to SAT also begins the process to identify students that will earn scholarships. Anderson One students’ average score was 930 above the state’s average of 923.
Advanced Placement class participation was up this year in Anderson One while many students opt out of AP to take Dual Credit courses through local universities for college credit. 434 students took AP courses with 610 exams administered. The average score for Anderson One was 49.2% of students scoring a passing grade of 3, 4, or 5.
“Anderson One is focused on the state’s profile of a SC graduate and is striving to find additional ways to help college bound students meet college readiness benchmarks. Our goal is for students to be successful in college when they leave our schools. Opportunities are available for SAT test prep classes for students and professional development for teachers with College Board,” said Assistant Superintendent Jane Harrison.
