From Fairfax County Public Schools:

Students in Fairfax County Public Schools (FCPS) class of 2011 outperformed their peers in Virginia and the nation on the SAT, according to results just released by FCPS Superintendent Jack D. Dale.  FCPS scores are 39 points above the state’s average in Critical Reading, 54 points above the state’s average in Mathematics, and 45 points above the state’s average in Writing. SAT results compiled by the College Board show that FCPS students posted average scores of 551 in Critical Reading, 563 in Mathematics, and 540 in Writing for an overall composite score of 1654, down from last year’s overall composite score of 1663 (see Table 1). Slight decreases were also observed in state and national composites.  

Five schools in Fairfax County made one-year gains in all three sections: Centreville High School, Hayfield Secondary School, Lake Braddock Secondary School, Madison High School, and Woodson High School.  Students at Lake Braddock Secondary School posted the greatest gains by increasing the school’s Critical Reading average by 13 points, the Mathematics average by 2 points, and the Writing average by 10 points. Students at Hayfield Secondary School posted the second highest gains, raising the Critical Reading average by 8 points, the Mathematics average by 4 points, and the Writing average by 10 points 
(see Table 2).  

Of the 25 high schools in FCPS, 15 saw an increase in their Critical Reading average, 11 saw an increase in their Mathematics average, and 10 saw an increase in their Writing average over the last year.  Fairfax High School and Madison High School students made steady gains in Critical Reading in each of the last three years while students at Mount Vernon High School made steady gains in both Critical Reading and Mathematics over the last three years.
