Seniors at both high schools posted above-average marks, with Los Altos students scoring 587 in critical reading, 620 in math and 598 in writing for a total of 1805. Mountain View students scored 583, 619 and 589 in the same subjects, respectively, for a total of 1791. A total of 2400 is possible.
Statewide, students averaged a score of 1511, and nationwide they averaged 1509.
