Pope High School SAT scores were the second highest in Cobb County for 2019! The Cobb County School District released 2019 Scholastic Aptitude Test (SAT) scores on Tuesday, and four East Cobb high schools lead the way.
Walton (1,288), Pope (1,220) and Lassiter (1,212) had average class wide scores exceeding 1,200, while Wheeler (1,196) came close. While Pope High School SAT scores are among the highest, two other sought-after East Cobb high schools are very close – Walton High (with the highest score) and Lassiter High (the third highest), and Wheeler High not far behind in fourth place. While all these schools are excellent, it is important to check into a schools programs and not just focus on the highest test scores (especially when they are so close) to assure a good fit for your student as each school will differ somewhat in educational style and special programs offered.
For many years Pope High School SAT scores have consistently ranked in the top 3 of East Cobb’s trifecta of top Cobb high schools – Walton, Lassiter, and Pope.
Wheeler’s jump of 49 points was the highest of the 16 high schools in the Cobb County School District.
“Wheeler continues to focus on providing the best overall learning experience for ALL students,” Wheeler Principal Paul Gillihan said in a statement issued by the school district.
“We strongly believe that SAT scores do not define our students nor our school but only provide evidence of the work that is being done daily to prepare our students for college and careers.”
Walton’s score is up 20 points from 2018. Full district scores and details can be found here.
