Buffalo Business First has compiled a list of the Capital Region High Schools with the highest SAT scores.Their list is based on recent data released by the New York Department of Education. So which Capital Region High School has the highest average SAT Score?

Niskayuna. No surprise here, as Nisky always seems to score high in any type of school or education related rankings. According to Buffalo Business First, Nisky students average 566 in the reading portion and 592 in the math portion of the SAT for a combined average of 1,158. The highest possible score is a 1,600 (800 for reading; 800 for math).Pretty impressive! Here are the rest if the top 5 with their average scores:

  • 2. Voorheesville - 1,144
  • 3. Bethlehem - 1,128
  • 4. North Colonie - 1,115
  • 5. Chatham - 1,108

I honestly cannot remember what I got on my SAT's, but I do recall how stressful it was taking that test. The preparation and taking the test were both very nerve-racking. My advice to students taking this one? Do your best to prepare. And if you do well on the test great; if you don't - success down the road will make you quickly forget how you performed on one test in one small moment of your life. :)
