Dorman Awarded for SAT Performance

New Education Department program showcases outstanding performance on ACT and SAT exams


 Dorman high school is one of only Seventy-nine highs schools across South Carolina to be recognized for their performance on the SAT college entrance exams.  

In their first year, the ACT/SAT Performance Improvement Awards (ASPI) were created to showcase schools that showed high performance on the ACT or SAT and those that have had rapid or continuous improvement in their scores. The recipients represent 42 of South Carolina’s 85 school districts and will receive banners and certificates of achievement for their efforts.

“I commend these schools for what they have accomplished,” said State Superintendent of Education Jim Rex. “Their students, teachers, counselors, administrators and parents have aimed high and worked extremely hard – setting an example for other schools in their districts and regions.”

Awards for high performance go to schools whose average composite score exceeds the national average, whose improvement in composite score exceeds the state average, or whose score is in the top tenth percentile in the state.
