BK Class of 2016 boasts highest ACT scores ever

Aug. 24, 2016

Bishop Kelley High School’s graduating seniors got their test scores back this week. They couldn’t wait to release them.

“We just blew the top off our previous scores,” Principal Judith McMasters said.

The composite score of 24.9 surpassed the school’s 2015 high of 24.7. All of the 189 seniors in the class took the ACT.

Results from Bishop Kelley High School, the largest private high school in Oklahoma, showed that scores in English, Reading and Science were all-time high scores for the school, established in 1960.

“There is still work to do at Bishop Kelley,” McMasters said, “but this is a great testament to the hard work our teachers do in the classroom and some of the initiatives we have added in the last few years to help our students get these scores up…I am proud of our composite score with our diverse population.”

Bishop Kelley High School had 65 Oklahoma Academic Scholars in the class of 2015. Those students have a 3.7 or higher grade point average and a 27 ACT score.
