Parkway Central Student Earns Perfect Score on ACT

Parkway Central High senior, Jessica Scully, was one of only five college-bound students in Missouri and one of 75 in the U.S. to achieve a 36, the highest possible composite score, on the October 2006 national test administration of the ACT. About 24,000 Missouri students and 475,000 from across the nation completed the ACT college-entrance exam on October 28, 2006. The ACT consists of test in English, mathematics, reading and science. Each test is scored on a scale of 1-36, a students composite score is the average of the four test scores. For purposes of comparison, the average composite score for the national high school graduating class of 2006 was 21.1. Some students also take the ACTs optional Writing Test, but the score for that test is reported separately and is not included in the ACT composite score. In a letter recognizing this exceptional achievement, ACT chief executive officer Richard L. Ferguson points out that Jessica Scully should have a choice of the widest range possible of future educational options. ACT scores are accepted by virtually all U.S. colleges and universities.
