Indiahoma Public School Receives College Readiness Recognition
Indiahoma Public School has received the “2012 College Readiness Award” from the ACT Southwest Region for increasing the number of students taking the ACT Assessment over the past five years and significantly increasing their level of achievement and college readiness. ACT, Inc. is the not-for-profit organization that provides assessment, research, information, and the publisher of the ACT Assessment. The ACT Assessment is the college admissions test that is used and accepted by all colleges nationwide and throughout Oklahoma. In 2012, over 80% of Oklahoma graduating high school seniors took the ACT, which is the predominant college admissions and readiness achievement test in Oklahoma.
According to Karen L. Pennell, Assistant Vice President and ACT Southwest Regional Manager:
“The ACT Southwest Region wanted to recognize those Oklahoma high schools that have made significant strides in increasing the college and career readiness of their graduates as demonstrated by their ACT score increases over the past five years. This can only happen as a result of the high school’s faculty and staff efforts and the dedication of Indiahoma Public School students and parents to focus on college and career readiness and raise the level of academic readiness for all students. Only 66 high schools in Oklahoma were honored for this superior level of accomplishment which represents only 11% of all Oklahoma high schools. These outstanding Oklahoma high Schools should be proud of their faculty, staff, and students! Congratulations!"
