James B. Conant High School students Kevin Chang, Caitlin Eder, Glenn Huang, and Reema Patel each
achieved a 36 on the American College Test (ACT) examination, the highest possible composite score,
and have been invited to receive Board of Education recognition for this outstanding achievement.
The ACT, which is taken by nearly 60 percent of America’s college-bound students as well as all
junior students in Illinois as part of the Prairie State Achievement Examination, is comprised of tests
in English, mathematics, reading, and science reasoning. Each test is scored on scale of 1-36, and a
student’s score is the average of the four test scores. On average, less than one-tenth of one percent
of all ACT test takers earns a top score.
