High School Junior Earns Highest Possible ACT Score
A school district in Uhrichsville, Ohio is celebrating the success of a high school junior after he earned an ACT composite score of 36.
School officials note that on average, only around one-tenth of 1 percent of students who take the ACT earn a top score. In the U.S. high school graduating class of 2017, only 2,7600 out of more than 2 million students who took the ACT earned a composite score of 36.
This year, Claymont High School Junior, Jacob Cannon, joined that small margin.
The ACT includes tests in English, mathematics, reading, and science and each is scored on a scale of 1-36. The composite score is the average of all four scores.
