(KMOV.com) - Illinois released its annual report card on schools with overall positive numbers statewide but concerns for high school students.

In the first year of standard testing with the SAT's, just over a third of students managed to score well on the college test.

"First time around for everybody, so this is like increasing your workout from one mile to five miles," says Granite City superintendent Jim Greenwald.

Statewide the graduation rate in Illinois rose from 2016 to 87 percent, students taking AP exams also rose in 2017 and state language arts test scores among third to eighth graders also were up.
