CHS Ranks Sixth In Alabama For ACT College Readiness

Cullman High School has been ranked sixth among all Alabama public school systems in the percentage of students considered college ready in one or more ACT assessed subjects.

CHS Ranks Sixth In Alabama For ACT College ReadinessThe Public Affairs Research Council of Alabama (PARCA) recently released these results in their 2015 ACT Assessments for Alabama Schools and Systems.

According to PARCA, the 2015 ACT scores are the first set of results in which all Alabama high school students took the ACT. In the past, only students who were college bound took the ACT. Now, all high school students take the test in their junior year, and the results reflect the percentage of students who graduated from high school ready to succeed in college-level courses as measured by the ACT.

The PARCA report also noted,

“Because the universe of students taking the test has widened to include all students, this year’s results for the state and for schools should not be compared to previous years or to national averages.”

The Alabama Department of Education counts a high school graduate as college ready if he or she scores at or above the ACT designated score in one of four subjects on the ACT: English, reading, math, or science. According to ACT, if a student meets or beats the designated score in a subject that student has a 50 percent chance of making a B or better in a college-level course and a 75 percent chance of making a C or better in that course.

PARCA said, the Cullman High School faculty and students are to be commended for this significant accomplishment. This PARCA ACT report along with several other assessments, affirm that Cullman High School graduates are well prepared to enroll in college or enter the workforce.

The top five school systems were: Mountain Brook, Vestavia Hills, Madison City, Hoover City, and Homewood.

Rounding out the top ten were Arab, Trussville, Muscle Shoals, and Huntsville City.
