Junior Earns Perfect Score on ACT

Michelle Hsu with Assistant Principal
Locust Valley High School Junior Michelle Hsu earned a perfect score of 36 on the ACT exam. The exam is one of the components colleges and universities use when deciding which students to accept. The ACT has four parts, each one worth 36 points. Michelle earned a score of 36 on each of the sections: English, mathematics, reading and science.

Perfect scores on the ACT are extremely rare. For example, nationally, the Class of 2018 had only 2,760 students earn a perfect score out of the more than 2 million students that took the exam, or two-tenths of one percent. The curriculum-based achievement test measures what students have learned. Michelle’s perfect score demonstrates that she has mastered all of the skills and knowledge she will need to succeed in her first year of college.

Michelle is well-rounded, participating in clubs, writing for the high school newspaper, The Spectrum, and she is an accomplished pianist.

Congratulations, Michelle!
