NCSS Announces 2022 ACT Results
Posted on 11/02/2022
ACT ResultsThe Georgia Department of Education has released Newton County School System’s district and school-level ACT Scores for the 2021-2022 school year. According to the data, students at Eastside High School outpaced the nation in all categories and the composite score last school year. District and school scores did, however, fall short of the state average in 2022.

Unlike the SAT, a reasoning test that measures critical thinking skills and assesses how well a student analyzes and solves problems, the ACT is a series of curriculum-based, multiple-choice tests that cover content knowledge in four basic skill areas: English (College English Composition), Math (College Algebra), Reading (College Social Science), and Science (College Biology). Students also receive a composite score on the exam, which is scored on a scale from 0 to 36. The ACT also has an optional writing test.

“Congratulations to our Eastside students, families, teachers, and leaders! We are all incredibly proud of your hard work, dedication, and focus,” said Samantha Fuhrey, superintendent of the Newton County School System. “We continue to work diligently to prepare students for life beyond high school which for many includes post-secondary education. As such, teachers and both district office and school leaders will review the results to continue to identify opportunities for all students to experience even greater success.”
