FCS Leads Georgia Counties with 2019 ACT Scores

For the fifth consecutive year, Forsyth County Schools (FCS) has the highest ACT score among county and large school districts in Georgia, with a composite score of 24.5. FCS’ five high schools, Lambert HS (#10), South Forsyth HS (#17), Forsyth Central HS (#34), West Forsyth HS (#35) and North Forsyth HS (#53), were in the top 55 highest scores out of 443 high schools in Georgia. Additionally, all high schools in the district scored above the state and national composite scores. 

"FCS students, staff, parents, community and business members, should all be very proud of our ACT scores," shared FCS Superintendent Jeff Bearden. "Overall, we had more students take the ACT and maintained our composite score with this increase. Improving the academic, social and emotional opportunities for our children is a community focus.”
