Etowah HS Senior Earns Perfect ACT Score

Tags : |

Category : ACADEMICS

Etowah High School senior Nathan Baker has achieved a perfect score on the ACT!

Nathan earned the top composite score of 36 on a recent administration of the college entrance and placement 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 1 percent of students who take the ACT earns the top score.  Only 2,235 out of the nearly 2.1 million students who took the exam in 2016 earned a score of 36, according to ACT.

“[This] achievement on the ACT is significant and rare,” ACT Chief Executive Officer Marten Roorda said.

The ACT includes English, mathematics, reading and science sections; each section is scored on a scale of 1-36, and a student’s composite score is the average of the four.  Some students also take ACT’s optional Writing Test, but that score is reported separately and is not included within the composite.

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

Nathan will be recognized by the Cherokee County School Board and Superintendent of Schools at the School Board Meeting on Feb. 2, 2017.
