  •  A very low score (0+ / 0-)

    That 19 is not very high and such students in my experience will still have difficulty doing college-level work.

    Not a good number.

    •  national average in 2002 was 20.8 (0+ / 0-)

      This is what I found on Google:

      The national average ACT Composite score for the high school graduating class of 2002 is 20.8, down slightly from 21.0 last year. The average Composite had held steady at 21.0 since 1997.

      So, yeah, 19 is slightly below average. On the other hand, community college is basically for people who need to prep for a four-year school, so it seems like an appropriate score.
