BT Soars Above Area High Schools with Junior ACT Scores

Last year, juniors across the state took the ACT to gauge how prepared they were for college-level English, science, and math courses. One hundred percent of BT's class of 2018 met the benchmark for English and science; 86 percent met the benchmark for math, indicating they are primed to succeed next fall as they head off to college.

The test was administered to 22,300 Nebraska juniors, with less than a third meeting the benchmarks. The benchmark scores are based on actual performance of students in college. A student who hits the benchmark on an ACT subject test has about a 50 percent chance of earning a B or higher or about a 75 percent chance of earning a C or higher in the corresponding college courses.
