75% of Holmdel High Students Achieve 1550 or Above on SAT

The College Board has found scores of 1550 and above indicate college readiness and a high rate of higher education success.

The New Jersey state report card issued by the Department of Education shows Holmdel High School students are achieving high scores on college readiness tests.

75 percent of Holmdel High students scored a 1550 or above, on a 2400 point scale. The composite score in HHS was 1788, about 1,000 points above the average.

"The SAT benchmark score of 1550 (Critical Reading, Mathematics and Writing Score combined) indicates a 65 percent likelihood of achieveing a B- average or higher during the first year of college, which in turn has been found by the College Board's research to be indicative of a high likelihood of college success and completion," the report said. 

College readiness also encompasses AP programs, of which Holmdel students took 17 subjects tests.

In Holmdel, 95 percent of students who took an AP math, sciene or english test scored a 3 or greater.

The state report card shows 97.6 percent of the 2012 class graduated, with a .2 percent dropout rate. The state target for dropouts is to remain under 2 percent.

Patch will continue to publish school report card data for Holmdel schools over the coming weeks.
