Rockwood students rock the ACT

By: Bonnie Krueger

Several local Rockwood School District high school students scored an impressive 36 – the highest possible score – on the ACT college admissions and placement exam.

They include: ​From Lafayette High, ​Prathi Pitchyaiah and ​Ala Blaszczyk; From Marquette High, Sydney Ring, Michael Wu, Eric Chien, William An and Michelle Li.

Nationally, while the actual number of students earning a composite score of 36 varies from year to year, less than one-tenth of 1 percent of students who take the ACT earn a top score of 36. In the U.S. high school graduating class of 2016, only 2,235 out of nearly 2.1 million graduates who took the ACT earned a composite score of 36.

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 four test scores. The ACT assesses high school students’ general educational development and their ability to complete college-level work.
