CHS/MST Magnet students Monica Chang (junior) and Lindsey Leetham (senior) have accomplished the rare feat of earning a perfect ACT score of 36. Wow! How rare, you ask?

“On average, less than one-tenth of 1 percent of students who take the ACT earn a top score, according to the organization. In the U.S. high school graduating class of 2016, only 2,235 out of nearly 2.1 million graduates who took the ACT earned a composite score of 36.

The ACT consists of tests in English, mathematics, reading and science, each scored on a scale of 1-36. A student’s composite score is the average of the four test scores.”

In letters to Chang and Leetham recognizing their achievement, ACT Chief Executive Officer Marten Roorda stated, “Your achievement on the ACT is significant and rare. While test scores are just one of multiple criteria that most colleges consider when making admission decisions, your exceptional ACT composite score should prove helpful as you pursue your education and career goals.”

ACT test scores are accepted by all major U.S. colleges.”

Congratulations, Lindsey and Monica!
