2014-2015 ACT Scores - Wellsville

 Mr. Adams, High School Principal

November 5, 2015

The ACT consists of curriculum-based tests of educational development in English, mathematics, reading, and science designed to measure the skills needed for success in first-year college coursework.

Wellsville High School recently received ACT scores from the 2014-2015 school year.  We are extremely pleased to announce that Wellsville’s average score was 21.8, which was above the national average of 21.0. The 21.8 also indicated an increase of almost .5 points above scores from the previous year. This is the third year in a row that ACT scores have improved at Wellsville.  Wellsville High School scores were above the state average in math, reading, and science.  Although we were below the state average in English our score has improved in that area each of the last three years.

ACT tests are very important in determining admission to universities and in earning scholarships.

Enrolling in rigorous classes is the number one thing that students can do to prepare for the ACT and the challenges of the college classroom.

The chart below shows Wellsville’s ACT scores in each area for the last three years:
