Now that almost all of our seniors have taken the ACT, we recently examined how our seniors did overall. We are pleased to report that our students have continued their high levels of testing.
This year, the graduating class of 2013's composite average on the ACT was 23.7. This is 5 points higher than Mississippi's average of 18.7 and 2.6 points higher than the national average of 21.1.
In light of the recent focus on ACT as a standard measure of a school's success, we are very proud of our seniors' performance and expect the numbers only to get better in the coming years.

Recently, the Superintendent of Schools in Pascagoula (MS) wrote an enlightening and courageous op-ed piece about how public schools need to move away from State testing and go to a more practical use of resources. He believes strongly that using a standardized test (that has solid standards attached, like the ACT) as a guide for improving student achievement is the answer.
This article is very timely, since St. Stanislaus' faculty and administration have been working for over a year on revising and improving our curriculum based on College Readiness Standards.
