Cherokee's SAT Scores Best in Georgia

The district released the scores for its individual high schools on Tuesday.

The Cherokee County School District had the highest SAT district average in the state for the 2011-12 school year.

Cherokee's SAT district average of 1,587 ranked first in top 10 districts across the state, narrowly surpassing Fulton County's average score of 1,580. Other metro Atlanta districts in the top 10 include Forsyth, Fayette, Cobb, Gwinnett and Decatur City schools. 

"Congratulations to the students, parents, teachers and administrators on making Cherokee County School District No. 1 in the State of Georgia,” Superintendent of Schools Dr. Frank R. Petruzielo said in a statement. “What is important about this distinction is that it shows our school district offers consistent academic quality throughout the county. Among our high schools, the difference from the highest to lowest SAT average this year is less than 50 points, which assures parents that no matter which high school their child attends, they are assured of having access to challenging coursework and academic rigor that will prepare them for the future."

Collectively, the district's average was also higher than the statewide average of 1,452 and the national average of 1,498.

Maybe Dr P should be getting education awards instead of Will Rogers.
