The results of the 2014 SAT tests have been released, and Burlington students maintained nearly the exact same averages that they had in 2013. The 2014 average scores were a 521 in Reading, and a 519 in Writing, compared to a 520 in both scores last year. In both scores, Burlington ended up higher than the state average; the Reading score puts Burlington in the top third in the state, while the Writing score puts us in the top 25%.
Across the entire SAT, including Math, BHS students once again averaged a score (1574) that surpassed the state’s “College Readiness score” of 1550 – an accomplishment that was only earned by fewer than one-third of the schools in Massachusetts last year.
Statewide, Massachusetts scores remained stable from last year, and Massachusetts remains among the top-performing states on the SAT.
