On Wednesday, February 20, the Class of 2020 will take the ACT during the school day. To prepare for this, the juniors have access to a self-paced ACT Prep course on the Naviance platform.
The Class of 2019 was the second class at WLHS to take the ACT as a whole. Students in the top quarter of the class of 2019 averaged 27.3 (91st percentile) on the ACT, while the top half of the class scored an average of 24.6 (83rd percentile). The top three-quarters of the class averaged 22.7 (70th percentile) on the exam. Achieving a 23 on the ACT means a student scored in the top third of all students nationwide.
The Class of 2019 average composite score was 20.9, out pacing the averages for the state (20.1) and Milwaukee district (16.2). As a whole, WLHS students also outperformed their peers ACT scores in math, reading, science, English, English language arts and STEM at the state and district level. Our goal is that with additional prep, the class of 2020 will meet and possibly surpass the high standards that have already been set by the Class of 2019.
