Dreher's AP and SAT Scores are above State averages:
ADVANCED PLACEMENT (AP) EXAMS:
According to the State Department of Education's website (http://ed.sc.gov/data/test-scores/national-assessments/ap/):
"The percentage of examinations with scores of 3 or higher for South Carolina public school students in 2016 was 57 percent (25,841 out of 45,093). For the nation, during the same period, the percentage of examinations with scores of 3 or higher for public school students was 56 percent."
Dreher is proud to report that 274 of our students took 506 AP exams last May. Seventy-one percent of those exams were passed with a score of 3, 4 or 5. Our 71% pass rate is well above national, state and district averages.
The State Department of Education's website (http://ed.sc.gov/data/test-scores/national-assessments/sat/) also shows SAT scores for graduating seniors by school and district. Dreher's mean composite SAT scores (critical reading + math + writing) in 2016 rose eight points to 1485. Our composite scores are above national, state and district averages.
Thank you, Dreher teachers and students, for working so hard in 2016!
