Eight District 211 Students Earn Perfect Scores on ACT Exam


At its April 30, 2015 meeting, the Board of Education will honor eight High School District 211 students for achieving a 36, the highest possible composite score, on the ACT exam.

These students included Palatine High School student Bryan Lu, William Fremd High School students Daniel Classon, Kellie Halloran, Cameron Harro, Jiamin Huang, Abigail Iuorio, Jennie Yang, and Soumyaa Mazumder.

The ACT, which is taken by nearly 60 percent of America’s college-bound students as well as all junior students in Illinois as part of the Prairie State Achievement Examination, is comprised of tests in English, mathematics, reading, and science reasoning.

Each test is scored on scale of 1-36, and a student’s score is the average of the four test scores.  On average, less than 1 percent of all ACT test takers earns a top score.  In the class of 2014 in the state of Illinois, only 184 students earned a composite score of 36.

Since 1998, 78 High School District 211 students have earned a top score of 36 on the ACT.
