This year’s SAT scores show Pike County students posted gains in each category while Georgia’s scores continued to plummet.
The 2009 SAT college admission exam results were released Aug. 25 by the College Board. The 2009 scores are the highest ever tallied by Pike County students, according to Kevin Huffstetler, director of teaching and learning for Pike schools.
“We’re ecstatic to be moving in the opposite direction of the state,” Huffstetler said.
“I’m extremely excited, but I’m not surprised,” Pike High School principal Mike Maddox said of the SAT scores earned by his students. “Pike High School has a long history of great teachers and the best students in the state of Georgia.”
