Teton County School District #1 Announces ACT Results

Today the ACT results were released.  All 11th grade students in Wyoming take the ACT.  During the 2017-2018 school year 173 TCSD #1 juniors took this nation-wide assessment in it’s new, online format.  TCSD #1 is pleased with the results, which indicate that Jackson Hole High School (JHHS) students scored above State averages in all areas- English, Math, Reading, and Science, and the Composite.  The JHHS composite score, which is the average score of the combined sub-tests, was 22.3, while the State composite was 19.5. We are excited to announce one TCSD student scored a perfect 36 on the assessment.

Superintendent Gillian Chapman commented, “We are very proud of our hardworking students.  While no single assessment is 100% predictive of student learning, the ACT is intended to predict college success.  These results show that our students are well prepared to succeed in postsecondary education. Every year we closely monitor results from all assessment tools to understand what is working and where we need to focus more attention.  Our team will carefully review and analyze ACT and school based data to inform instructional services for the coming school year. TCSD#1 continues to outperform the state, which demonstrates the expertise of our staff and their focus on excellence each and every day.”

ACT is a single assessment measure intended to give districts an overall look at how students are mastering state standards.  It is an important, but small piece used to determine the focus of districts, schools, and teachers to ensure students are mastering the standards expected by the state of Wyoming.
