Hamilton ACT score highest in its history

Superintendent Kathleen Cooke announced to School Board members that the district performance on the ACT test is the highest since the district has tracked its performance on the college-entrance exam. With a composite score of 23.1, Hamilton students from the class of 2005 who took the test scored one full point above last year’s result. It is the highest score the school has seen in its composite score since 1985. Hamilton’s results were above the state composite score of 22.2. School Board members complimented Hamilton staff members for the tremendous accomplishment.
