Marietta Average SAT® Scores
Outpace State, Reading & Writing
Marietta above state, below national

MARIETTA, GA -Marietta High School (MHS) student’s total combined average scores on the 2013 Scholastic Aptitude Test (SAT®) outpaced the Georgia total (1452) by four points at 1456. Marietta did not surpass the national total (1498). The Georgia and national average were unchanged from 2012. MHS results reflect the performance of 248 seniors tested. Of the three subject scores in reading, writing, and mathematics, MHS students scored highest in reading.

“Although Marietta’s SAT scores ranked us among the Top 20 percent statewide (29 out of 178 Georgia high schools), we need more academic supports such as an SAT/ACT Boot camp to be offered at MHS this year,” said Dr. Emily Lembeck, Marietta City Schools Superintendent. “These additional supports will help us meet the needs of the increased number of first-generation students that aspire to go to college.”

“Of the three subject scores in reading, writing, and mathematics, MHS students scored highest in reading,” added Lembeck. “While our total combined average score declined slightly, we are pleased that our African-American and White students exceeded the performance of their state and national peers.”
