Eight students receive perfect ACT scores

South Washington County Schools is pleased to announce the latest list of perfect ACT scores. As of December 5, 2017, ACT released the names of eight students in District 833 who have received a perfect 36 on the college readiness assessment test taken last spring.

East Ridge High School senior Ashley Holton and junior Leah Restad, Park High School senior Noah Susag, and Woodbury High School seniors Ethan Lee, A.J Hofelman, Hughdan Liu, Kamilah Gobran and junior David Li, all earned a top composite score of 36 on a recent ACT test. Nationally, while the actual number of students earning a composite score of 36 varies from year to year, on average, less than one-tenth of one percent of students who take the ACT earn the top score.

The ACT 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. Some students also take ACT's optional Writing Test, but the score for that test is reported separately and is not included in the ACT composite score.

District 833 remains above the state and national averages in all subjects, with an overall average composite ACT score of 22.7.

ACT test scores are accepted by all major U.S. colleges, and exceptional scores of 36 provide colleges with evidence of student readiness for the academic rigors that lie ahead.

Congratulations to these high achieving students.
