For the first time since 2009 when Kentucky began monitoring the ACT scores of all juniors, Spencer County High School is at state average. And while administrators agree average is not where they want to stay, the school has come a long way from the bottom.
In 2008, state academic assessment data put SCHS in the bottom 10 percent of Kentucky’s public high schools. According to the 2013 ACT score data, the class of 2014 earned a 19.2 composite score, which is the state ACT average. The 2012 composite score was 17.8.
