In 2005-06, Wisconsin’s average ACT score (22.2 out of a possible 36) was 10th highest among the states. All but one of the Door County school districts exceeded the state average for the same time period.
Since the mid-1990s, Wisconsin students in 4th, 8th, and 10th grades have been tested each year using Wisconsin Knowledge and Concepts Exams (WKCE). The exams consist of five sections: reading, language arts, math, science and social studies. Scores reported in the Academic Performance Table indicate the total percentage of students that scored either proficient or advanced on each test. Grades and school districts are combined for reporting in this table. Data is from the 2007-08 school year. Door County students exceed the state average in all five subjects tested.
