Geneva’s Students Outperform State Average on ACT
Geneva continues to post high scores in the state achievement test.
In a continuation of the success that Geneva High School’s students traditionally display on the ACT, Geneva’s graduating class of 2012 achieved an average ACT composite score of 23.9, according to numbers released this week by ACT.
