Frisco High School, Centennial High School and Wakeland High School have been acknowledged by the Texas ACT Council with the 2012 College Readiness Award.
The award is given in recognition of campuses that have shown significantly increasing composite ACT test scores over a five year period and an increasing number of students taking the test during that period.
These high schools in the Frisco Independent School District are three of only 170 high schools in the state which have been able to reach this goal. More than 39 percent of Texas seniors took the ACT test this past year, a record number, according to Karen Pennell, Assistant Vice President of the ACT, Inc., Southwest Region.
The remaining high schools in Frisco ISD have not had students taking the ACT test long enough to qualify for the award.
Superintendent Rick Reedy offered his congratulations to Principals Sylvia Palacios, Randy Spain and Mike Farish for the hard work of faculty and students on their campuses.
