School District Five ranks among the top in the state for ACT scores

Lexington-Richland School District Five’s ACT mean composite score ranks among the highest in the state according to data recently released by the South Carolina Department of Education. These scores reflect ACT scores of students in the graduating class of 2018.


Test results for the latest ACT assessment showed School District Five students had a composite score of 20.1, the second highest composite score of traditional school districts in South Carolina. That score exceeds the state average of 18.3.


“School District Five places a top priority on classroom instruction, and the most recent ACT results are a testament to the hard work of our students, teachers and entire community,” said School District Five Chief Instructional Officer Michael Guliano. “We will continue to review these results and others to refine and improve teaching and learning across all of our schools.”


The ACT exam is a national college admissions examination that consists of subject area tests in English, Mathematics, Reading and Science. The test includes multiple choice questions with a highest possible score of 36. It is offered several times per year in the United States.
