2000 Scholastic Assessment Test (SAT) Results for Montgomery County Public Schools

The good news is that, over the past 10 years, our overall performance has increased by small but steady increments along with expanding participation rates. Unfortunately, these overall gains were not found among all racial/ethnic groups. SAT scores have remained essentially flat for African American seniors and have declined for Hispanic seniors. While maintaining overall quality in our academic programs, we must focus resources and strategies more specifically to ensure fuller participation in rigorous academic programs among African American and Hispanic students. Strategies found in schools demonstrating significant upward trends in SAT scores should be examined and emulated elsewhere.

The trend benders described in the Call To Action, if implemented appropriately and supported financially, will ensure that we provide a quality education for all of our students. We must ensure that our under achieving population, that is predominantly African American and Hispanic, have the same opportunities for academic success, while maintaining high standards for students who have traditionally been successful.
