Argyle High School was awarded the 2011 College Readiness Award from the Texas ACT Council for increasing their level of achievement and college readiness.
The ACT Assessment is the college admissions test that is used and accepted by all colleges nationwide and throughout Texas. In 2011, over 205,000 Texas students took the ACT, which was an all-time high and Texas ACT scores have increased substantially over the last five years.
“I am very proud of our students at Argyle High School for receiving the 2011 College Readiness Award. I appreciate the guidance that our superior staff provides that enables our students to perform at a high level,” said Argyle High School Principal Jeff Butts.
Karent L. Pennel, Assistant Vice President and ACT Southwest Regional Manager, said that only 10% of all high schools in Texas were honored for this superior level of accomplishment.
“The Texas ACT Council wanted to recognize those Texas high schools that have made significant strides in increasing the college readiness of their graduates as demonstrated by their ACT score increases over the past five years,” said Pennel.
“This achievement can only happen as a result of the high school’s faculty and staff efforts and the dedication of Argyle High School students and parents who focus on college readiness and raise the level of college readiness for all students.
“These outstanding Texas High Schools should be proud of their faculty, staff, and students.”
