    Lake Washington School District SAT scores well above state and national averages

    New test makes comparisons with past years difficult

    Redmond, Wash. – Lake Washington School District (LWSD) students continue to score higher on standardized tests than state and national averages. They scored on average 67 points higher on the SAT reading, writing and math test than the state and national averages during the last school year.

    However, because a new SAT was given starting in January 2016, the averages cannot easily be compared to previous years.

    “These results show that our students and teachers are working hard every day,” noted Dr. Traci Pierce, superintendent. “I am proud of Lake Washington students, teachers, administrators and our community for these results.”

    A total of 977 students took the SAT this year. This number is down from a district high of 1,135 in 2015.

    District 600
    State 536
    National 533


    Math Mean
    District 598
    State 531
