Staples Scores No. 5 in Newly Released SAT Scores

UPDATE The state Department of Education today released statewide SAT scores and Westport’s Staples High School came in No. 5 behind Darien, Weston, New Canaan, and Wilton.

Just over 40,000 students took the SAT in the school year that just ended – a 96 percent participation rate among high school juniors.

The results showed Staples students scoring an average 616 out of 800 on the English Language Art portion and 609 on the math, both improvements over the previous year when the scores were 598 and 599 respectively.

The state said 92.4 percent of Staples students met or exceeded requirements in English and 78.3 in math to be college ready or start a career. These were also improvements over the previous year when the results were 90.8 and 75.5 respectively.

By comparison, No. 1 Darien had an average score of 627 on the English portion and 633 on the math with 94.8 percent of students meeting or exceeding requirements to be college ready in English and 85.8 in math.

The state said one-third of high school juniors are not reading and writing well enough to begin taking college courses or start a career.

While thousands of those students are close to being where they should be, one out of every six high school juniors in Connecticut is significantly behind, according to the results.
