Lindbergh High School achieves highest ACT scores in its history

More Lindbergh High School seniors than ever are prepared for college success, according to record high scores that were reported on the school’s 2011 ACT College Readiness Letter.

Seniors who graduated in 2011 achieved an average composite score of 24.2 on the ACT – a full half point higher than 2010.

Jumps of more than a few tenths of a point per year are rare, according to LHS Counseling Director Jonathan Riethmeier.

The school’s 24.2 score average compares with an average of 21.6 across the state of Missouri.

“This shows us that our kids are college ready, so we know that when they go on to the next level of schooling they are truly prepared,” LHS Principal Ron Helms stated in a district news release.

The ACT College Readiness Letter is published to indicate how prepared students are for college-level work.
