Greenville County Schools’ Class of 2022 earned an average ACT composite score of 20.9 on the ACT’s 36-point scale and improved scores from last year in all subject areas, which include English, Mathematics, Reading, and Science.

This exceeds both the state and national average composite scores. Statewide, public school students recorded an average composite score of 18.5, compared to a national average composite score of 19.8. The national score reflects both public and private school test-takers.

Greenville County Schools ranks third out of all regular, public school districts in the state on the ACT composite score for graduating seniors.

Six GCS high schools exceeded the state and national average composite score on the ACT:

  • Eastside – 23.3
  • Riverside – 22.7
  • JL Mann – 22.5
  • Wade Hampton – 22.4
  • Greenville– 22.0
  • Mauldin – 22.0

Four GCS high schools exceeded the state average composite score on the ACT:

  • Hillcrest – 19.7
  • Greer – 18.8
  • Travelers Rest – 18.8
  • Blue Ridge – 18.6

While previously a required test for all eleventh graders in South Carolina, a change in state testing in 2018 gave students the opportunity to elect to participate in one no-cost school day test administration of the ACT or SAT, or they could choose not to take either test.

Scores for the GCS Class of 2022 represent a combination of two student groups: students that elected to take the test on a Saturday and students that took the test during a school day as part of state testing. For students taking the test more than once, the most recent set of test scores are included in the reported results.
