SAT Scores Down, Mirroring Nation

The local papers all have stories about a national decline in SAT scores, reflecting a downward trend in the two years since the college entrance test was revised and expanded. WaPo said Maryland's scores fell 13 points overall, and Virginia's dipped five points.

Howard scores dropped a total of six points.

“We are extremely proud of the performance of our students on the SAT,” Superintendent Sydney Cousin said in a statement. “Our average scores are consistently above the average state and national scores. That’s commendable.”
