See the latest SAT scores for every high school in Raleigh, Durham and Chapel Hill

Triangle public high schools can now take bragging rights on who had the highest average SAT score this year.

On Tuesday, the state Department of Public Instruction posted online the SAT scores for the Class for 2018 for every North Carolina school district and public high school. The average score for North Carolina public school students rose 16 points this year to 1,090 — 41 points above the national average for public schools.

The SAT and ACT are the two main college admissions exams taken by high school students. The SAT has slipped in prominence in North Carolina since the state began requiring students to take the ACT in 2012.

The N.C. School of Science and Mathematics, a public boarding school in Durham that attracts academically gifted teens from across the state, had the second-highest score in the state at 1,439. Only the Early College at Guilford was better, with an average score of 1,442 out of a possible 1,600.

Raleigh Charter High School had the next highest score in the Triangle, and the third-best statewide, at 1,356.

The Chapel Hill-Carrboro school system had the highest average score of any district in the state at 1,260. Among other Triangle districts, the average score was 1,150 in Wake County, 1,147 in Orange County, 1,089 in Johnston County, 1,068 in Chatham County and 1.028 in Durham.
