Forrest County School District posted the largest ACT growth in Mississippi, leaping from an average composite score of 15.9 to 18.2 (2.3-point increase). It was the second year in a row that a MasteryPrep partner school posted the highest ACT growth in Mississippi. Forrest County has partnered with MasteryPrep since 2016.
North Forrest High School Principal Jennifer Riels shared several tips for success when trying to increase scores school-wide.
Forrest County used MasteryPrep’s ACT TruScore program to provide students with authentic practice testing and help their teachers make data-driven decisions to close achievement gaps. Through the years of its partnership with MasteryPrep, Forrest County has also relied on ACT Boot Camps, and in 2019, they rolled out The College Playbook, MasteryPrep’s student-friendly guide to college admissions. North Forrest High School started an ACT Club, which included entry to all students scoring 18 and above. There are celebrations, recognitions around school, awards for silver, bronze, and gold levels, and t-shirts made.
MasteryPrep is here to bridge the gap in an e-learning environment by providing your students with much needed college readiness preparation.
