Williamson County Schools students are once again proving their academic prowess by earning perfect ACT composite scores.
Thirteen students from five different high schools scored a 36 on the college readiness exam.
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.
“To put this achievement into perspective, ACT data for the Class of 2017 denotes that about one-tenth of one percent of all test takers across the nation score a 36,” said WCS Assistant Superintendent for Secondary Schools Dr. Charles Farmer. “What an amazing accomplishment for these students. We are so proud of them.”
