The College Board recently released the results for the SAT and the SAT Subject Tests for the graduating class of 2015. Miami-Dade County Public Schools’ seniors outshined their counterparts in Florida and reported increased scores in Reading, Mathematics and Writing.
“The results of the 2015 College Board SAT for Miami-Dade County Public Schools seniors are a direct result of teaching ingenuity and student academic enrichment,” said Superintendent of Schools Alberto M. Carvalho. “M-DCPS seniors are outpacing seniors across the state in critical core subject areas. This is an exemplary achievement for which the entire school district can be proud.”
These results summarize the performance of the students in the class of 2015 who may have taken the assessments at any point in high school through June 2015. For students who took the test more than once, only the most recent test scores are included in the analyses.
Nationally, nearly 1.7 million graduating seniors in the class of 2015 took the SAT, with nearly 123,000 participating in Florida. In M-DCPS, 15,389 students took the SAT, which represents 60 percent of the District’s class of 2015.
