MILWAUKEE (WTAQ) - A suburban Milwaukee school district has Wisconsin’s highest scores on the ACT college entrance exam.
Whitefish Bay students averaged 26 of a possible 36 on the general knowledge test.
The “Whitefish Bay Now” Web site says it’s the 15th straight year that local students averaged 25 or more on the ACT.
Interim Superintendent Laura Myrah said she knows of no other Wisconsin school system with such a long record of excellence. She credits it to the dedication shows by students, parents, and Whitefish Bay school staff.
We learned last week that Wisconsin as a whole averaged 22.1 on the ACT – same as a year ago, and tied with Iowa for the second-highest state score in the nation, behind neighboring Minnesota.
