Minnesota students earn best ACT test scores in the nation, as all student groups achieve higher scores

Minnesota students once again led the nation on ACT college entrance exam scores, with an average score of 21.5, compared to the national average of 21. As Minnesota students earned the top national ranking among states where all students take the test, all measured student groups increased their ACT scores this year, with African American students, Hispanic students, and Pacific Islander students all increasing average scores by 0.5 points. Among states who give the test to more than half of their students, Minnesota ranked fifth in the nation.
“Congratulations to Minnesota students, teachers, school boards, and administrators on this tremendous achievement,” said Governor Mark Dayton. “Ranking No. 1 in the nation confirms the overall quality of our state’s public education system.”

Students are welcomed back with a picnic


Ryan Highberg, Food Service director at Maple Lake Schools, seasons burgers at an outdoor cookout, Tuesday, Sept. 5, at the high school to celebrate the students’ first day back at school. According to Highberg, the Wellness Team put the event together as a way to make the return to classes a little more fun. Seventh through 12th grade students had the chance to choose between burgers, hotdogs and brats. They were also given carrots, chips and sparkling water donated by Viking Coca-Cola in St. Cloud. The Wellness Team tried to put this event together last year, they even had a student set up to D.J., but it was rained out.

A student chooses from a selection of fruit and vegetables. Students enjoyed a longer than usual lunch period that took place out-of-doors and included activities.

The buffet of picnic-style food included apples from Carlson’s Orchard in Annandale.

lunchroom staff prepared and served up 250 burgers, 200 hotdogs and 120 brats. General Rental in Monticello supplied the grill.
