Please note that some high schools have a much higher participation rate than others. The participation rate can have a major effect on the scores of a given school. If only a small percentage of students at a given school take the SAT, the score the school achieves may not represent an accurate reflection of the college-readiness of the students at that school.

A small number of South Carolina high schools are excluded from the list above. CarolinaSchoolHub only includes data on schools which meet thresholds we've established for data reliability.

The scores in the chart above represent a combination of the reading, writing and math SAT scores for each school. If you'd like to see more information on which high schools have the best or highest SAT scores in South Carolina, you can click through to each school above and see more information about how their average scores break down by subject.

In addition to South Carolina high school data, on this site you can also see North Carolina high schools with the best SAT scores.
