Murray High School Class of 2016 Exceeds ACT State Composite
Murray, Ky., Aug. 24------The 22.5 ACT Murray High School composite just released for the 2016 MHS class reflects that the 128 graduates improved the average ACT score for Murray High’s each individual subject and overall composite, as well as surpassing the 20.0 state composite.
          Bob Rogers, Murray Independent School District superintendent, applauded the district with making significant gains in the rising trend of the state ACT average. “We are very pleased that the class of 2016 had an average composite score of 22.5.  Our students have raised the composite a little each year since 2012.  When one considers that all members of the class took the ACT, this is a very nice average.”
The report that was sent to the MISD reflected the achievement of Murray High’s graduates over time and indicates the extent to which MHS graduates are prepared for college-level work. 
The ACT consists of curriculum-based tests of educational development in English, mathematics, reading, and science designed to measure the skills needed for success in first-year college coursework.   According to the newest released results, seventy-five percent of the MHS 2016 class are above the college benchmark in English, compared to a state average of fifty-nine percent.  Fifty-seven percent of the class are above benchmark in Mathematics compared to a thirty-one percent state average.
