Every year, more than 1.5 million high school students try their hand at the ACT, and each year less than one-tenth of one percent of those students score a perfect 36 on the test.
Williamson County Schools blew that stat out of the water earlier this year when it saw 10 WCS students take home perfect scores.
Brentwood, Page and Ravenwood high schools all celebrated students who scored a 36 on the ACT during the April test.
Brentwood saw six Bruins ace the test as Suh Hyeon Ahn, Katherine Beier, Shirley Cai, Matthew Donahue, Shreyas Kumar and Abigail Ezell all had perfect scores. Cailyn Goodbred, Theodore Grosson and Benjamin Thieme were the three Ravenwood students with a 36 and Hunter Spivey was the lone perfect score from Page.
“These students are certainly among the nation’s academic elite,” said WCS Assessment Analyst Kevin Deck. “Their accomplishment is yet another example of the talented students we have in WCS.”
The ACT assesses students’ academic readiness for college and consists of tests in English, mathematics, reading and science. Each test is scored on a scale of 1-36, and a student’s composite score is the average of the four test scores.
