Four D211 Students Earn Perfect Score on ACT Exam


At its April 14, 2016 meeting, the Board of Education honored four High School District 211 students for achieving a 36, the highest possible composite score, on the ACT exam.

Palatine High School students Brandon Canfield and Radin Marinov, and Schaumburg High School students Karolina Skarzynska and Kshitij Vashi, all earned perfect scores on the ACT. Vashi also earned a perfect score on the SAT.

The ACT, which is taken by nearly 60 percent of America’s college-bound students is comprised of tests in English, mathematics, reading, and science reasoning. Each test is scored on a 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 earn a top score.

Since 1998, 86 High School District 211 students have earned a top score of 36 on the ACT.
