And let's remember reported school SAT scores are not the same.
The public school SAT scores just include the kids that took the SATs. The low performers sat out and didn't drag down the school's scores.
The private schools require ALL of their students to take the SATs.
You should check your facts. Students are not REQUIRED to take SATs unless the schools they are applying to require them, whether they go to a public or private high school. There are quite a few in my son’s private school class who did not take them because the universities they were applying to no longer require them for admissions.
