Perfect Score on the ACT
Spring Valley seniors, Madison Han and Sai Siddharth Thumsi, earned the highest possible composite score of 36 on the ACT. 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 earn the top score. 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 the four test scores. Congratulations, Madison and Sai!
