Have not swung in these parts for a while. Right now the average would be about 14/15.

Newport scores in the bottom 5 percentile, and was only better than silver grove and Covington in NKY. However we all know things are turning around. We are sending people to Cali on the board, and looking at what Maysville did to improve.

And besides we have football to focus on--best of the best.

If 14/15 then how many are actually college ready out of the graduating class of 2013?

While I am not sure why anyone would ask this information on Topix - Here are the answers.

ACT - 17.2 - not that far off state average and that is with such a poor and diverse population.

Dropout - only 2 dropouts this year. Lowest in recent history.

For more answers try calling the high school?

newport students stopped being college ready a long time ago. right around the time the guidence counselors decided they were to going to pick and choose which student actually got the classes they needed for college. everyone knows you have to have certain prerequisites for college entrance but not all npt students get to take those classes becuase the school has deemed them as "only going to NKU" and NKU doesnt' require all of that to get in....i belive all students should have the oppurtunity to take a foreign language class or any of the other prerequisite classes it takes to get into UC or EKU, WKU, UK or any other school of their choice. the administration is limiting the possiblities because they have no faith...

Most universities including NKU UK and Louisville accept very few students with an ACT composite score of 18 or less. A score of 21 is considered average.

What about Dayton? Bellevue? Covington? Every child now takes ACT even those who do not plan on attending college. Newport is scoring pretty well considering the make-up of their population and in comparison of the high schools around them with similar demographics.
Again besides slandering the Newport students and staff what is your point

You're right. He would go straight to the Kentucky Department of Education, not the jokers at the high school. KDE's stats don't reflect the super duper picture you're giving.

The ACT scores are in the toilet in Newport. Don't shove that attitude of "oh, we deal with poor stupid kids so give us a pass." That is all I ever hear. You have to deal with "that kind of kid." Guess what...you have a job to do - educate every kid. How is talking about FACTS "slandering" anybody? That is a stupid comment.

Why is "NKU" worse than EKU/WKU? Same amount of research, has a better law school etc. In my 4 years at NKU i didn't see many NHS graduates

NKU isn't worse than any other school, it was my example of a school, NKU is a great school. Has more to do with location in reference to where these students live. My point was not all students are being prepared for college. NHS guidence counselor told students (and I quote) "you don't need a foreign language to get into NKU, so you won't need to take it". This was not the first or last time the counselor took it upon herself to decide what the future held for the students of NHS. My point is that the guidence counselor should have been more encouraging, "oh you want to take a foreign language class? thats great, most colleges require you to do that." why not encourage them to exceed expectations instead of limiting their possiblities.

A high school that cannot figure out they need a REAL guidance counsellor will never exceed bare minimum expectations.
