Mountain View School District was one of five school districts in Northeastern PA surpassing the state average for the SAT, Scholastic Aptitude Test, for the 2009 high school graduates.
The top five schools were Wayne Highlands, Abington Heights, Dallas, Mountain View, and Tunkhannock. Wayne Highlands and Abington Heights were the only two schools that met the national average. Mountain View, Dallas, and Abington Heights were the only three schools that exceeded the state average in both SAT Math/Verbal and Writing.
The SAT math and verbal tests are worth 800 points each, for a possible total of 1,600. Writing is also worth 800, but is not reflected in the average.
Average SAT scores for the five districts above the state average (994): 1. Wayne Highlands - 1,024; 2. Abington Heights - 1,020; 3. Dallas - 1,005; 4. Mountain View - 1,003; 5. Tunkhannock Area - 996.
