Sartell-St. Stephen Students' ACT Scores Outperform State, Nation

The students in the Sartell-St. Stephen Schools continue to perform better than the ACT state and national averages at all levels.    The ACT consists of exams in English, Math, Reading and Science and includes benchmarks that determine students’ readiness for college.

ISD 748 district results show students continue to outperform state and national averages.  In addition to being above state and national average, ISD 748 continues to have a higher than average percentage of our students taking the ACT exam.   "With Minnesota having the highest national average since 2006, it shows the strength of the students, staff and families to make exceeding these results a win for our community," said Mike Spanier, Interim Superintendent for the Sartell-St. Stephen School District.
