Murray, Ky., Aug. 20-----The 116 students who left the halls of Murray High as 2013 graduates are still giving back to their black and gold tradition of excellence.
According to newly released data, the same Murray High School seniors that achieved eighth place in the state last year with their 21.3 ACT composite raised it to 21.6.
Angie Murdock, Murray Independent School District supervisor of curriculum and instruction, said the final composite released regarding almost 50,000 graduating Kentucky high school seniors shows MHS graduating students are well-prepared for college, technical college or the work force. “Our students’ achievements are a testament to their hard work, dedication, relationships, and stout academics provided by all the Murray Independent staff,” she said.
Murray Independent School District takes pride in the graduates that launch their chosen career paths. “We congratulate the class of 2013 and all our staff for continuing to raise the bar and increase individual successes,” Teresa Speed, MHS principal, said.
The 2013 MHS graduates increased all scores, including subject areas including their overall composite. The final composites released for the MHS 2013 graduating class includes: 21.3 English, (Kentucky 19.2); 21.7 Math, (Kentucky 19.2); 21.3 Reading, (Kentucky 19.9) and 21.8 Science, (Kentucky 19.7).
The ACT scores for the MHS class of 2014 that took the test last spring will be released in September.
