2011 high school graduates in South Carolina showed modest improvement on the latest results from the ACT released Wednesday. The 2011 average composite score for South Carolina’s public, private, and home-schooled seniors was 20.1 on the ACT’s 36 point scale, up one-tenth of a point from a year ago. Public school high school graduates alone earned an average of 19.9, a jump of two-tenths of a point from last year. It marks the third consecutive year of improved scores on the college entrance exam, which test high school students in math, English, reading and science. However, South Carolina students still fell short of the national average score of 21.1.
