Parkway Central Student Earns Perfect Score on ACT

Parkway Central High senior, Hannah Lee, was one of only two students in Missouri and one of 85 in the U.S. to achieve a 36, the highest possible composite score, on the April 2007 national test administration of the ACT. About 25,000 Missouri students and 446,000 from across the nation completed the ACT college-entrance exam on April 14, 2007.

The ACT consists of tests in English, mathematics, reading and science. Each test is scored on a scale of 1-36, a student's 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 ACT's optional Writing Test, but the score for that test is reported separately and is not included in the ACT composite score.

In a letter to Hannah Lee recognizing her exceptional achievement, ACT chief executive officer Richard L. Ferguson said, "Your ACT score qualifies you to attend the most selective colleges and universities in the nation." ACT scores are accepted by virtually all U.S. colleges and universities.
