Shorewood High School ACT Results & Wisconsin Public High School Ranking Announced
Posted 09/15/2017 10:35AM

ACT recently released the graduating senior data for all schools in the 2016-17 school year, and Shorewood High School's ACT scores have made incremental improvements from their scores and projections in previous years.

The Class of 2017 data below shows a 0.7 point jump from junior year to senior year (going from a 22.8 to a 23.5) and consistent improvement over the predicted ACT class average on the Freshman Aspire Test of 21.5.

Graduating Class 2017 ACT Results

Freshman Aspire Predicted ACT Average = 21.5

Sophomore Aspire Predicted ACT Average = 22.8

Junior Statewide ACT Average = 22.8*

Senior Graduating ACT Average = 23.5**

*This score is the average of everyone that took the ACT on the state-mandated testing day.

**This score is the average of the BEST score everyone received, regardless of the date they took the test or how many times they took it.

The ACT "Graduating Class" five-year historical data below shows that the SHS Class of 2017 results were directly in line with last year's senior class results. It's important to note that following the SHS Class of 2015, all juniors moving forward were required to take the statewide ACT test, so a drop from 2015 to 2016 was to be expected, since the ACT became required of all students rather than optional for those who felt they were college bound.

Shorewood Seniors Historical ACT Results

Class of 2013 = 24.5

Class of 2014 = 24.4

Class of 2015 = 24.9

Class of 2016 = 23.5*

Class of 2017 = 23.5*

*Junior Statewide ACT testing became required.

In addition to the recent release of the ACT data, Niche Rankings—an online ranking and review company—also released data on the 2018 Best Public Schools in Wisconsin. After carefully comparing the best public schools based on key statistics from the U.S. Department of Education and millions of reviews, Shorewood High School came in at the number seven.
