FCS Earns Highest 2018 SAT Score in Georgia

Forsyth County Schools’ students have earned the highest SAT in Georgia for 2018. At 1167, FCS also surpassed the State score of 1054 and the National score of 1049.

“We are extremely proud of our students and staff, and congratulate them on this outstanding accomplishment,” shared FCS Superintendent Jeff Bearden. “Our community has continually supported our work to prepare and inspire all learners to lead and succeed. We are dedicated to instilling the attributes of our Learner Profile in every individual student that enters our schools.”

FCS’ five high school scores were also above State and National scores. Lambert HS (#7), South Forsyth HS (#13) and West Forsyth HS (#29) are among the 30 high schools in the State with the highest SAT scores. Likewise, four FC high schools increased SAT scores from 2017 to 2018.

According to the Georgia Department of Education, the 2017 SAT results set a new baseline for year-to-year comparisons. Results from earlier reports were based on the old SAT, which had a different score scale and different benchmarks. The 2017 and 2018 SAT scores are comparable, but comparisons to 2016 or earlier are not accurate.
