South Carolina’s latest high school graduates scored better than their peers nationally on the SAT college-entrance exam last spring. It was the first time in at least six years – since 2011 – that S.C. students scored above the national average.

Statewide, 46 percent of the S.C. Class of 2017 – or 19,605 public school students – took the SAT last school year, averaging a score of 1,058 out of a possible 1,600 points.

South Carolina’s 2017 scores are 14 points higher than the national average of 1,044 points for public school students who took the test, the S.C. Department of Education said Tuesday.

Students in two Midlands districts – Lexington 1 and Lexington-Richland 5 – scored higher than statewide and national averages.

 

How Midlands seniors performed on the SAT college-entrance exam, by district, out of a possible score of 1,600:

Kershaw: 279 students scored an average of 1,040

Lexington 1: 778 students scored an average of 1,087

Lexington 2: 158 students scored an average of 1,035
