The local graduating class of 2010 posted one of the highest overall college entrance exam test scores on record. Said River Falls High School principal Elaine Baumann: "I would attribute this success to students taking advantage of more rigorous class offerings from the start of high school, taking more AP classes, and taking more math and science all through high school."

This year's composite ACT score was 23.9, up from last year's 23.1, and higher than 14 high school graduating classes in the immediate area.

The state average this year was 22.1.
