“Congratulations to the Richmond County School System Class of 2022 for achievement growth over 2020 pre-pandemic SAT test takers,” said Dr. Kenneth Bradshaw, Superintendent of Schools. “Though there was a slight decrease from 2021, this year more of our students showed up to take the SAT, applied the knowledge they are learning in the classroom, and prepared for opportunities to continue their success after graduation.”
