At its Sept. 22, 2016 meeting, the Board of Education honored three High School District 211 students for achieving a 36, the highest possible composite score, on the ACT exam.

Fremd High School students Joanna Kus and Angela Peterson, and Conant High School student Shahir Taj, all earned perfect scores on the ACT.

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 one-tenth of one percent of all ACT test takers earn a top score.

Since 1998, 94 High School District 211 students have earned a top score of 36 on the ACT.
