Students Perfect on ACT

The American College Test (ACT), which is taken by over 60 percent of the country’s college-bound students, 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.

At the February 16, 2017 meeting, the Board of Education recognized two District 211 students for earning a 36 on the ACT exam: Kevin Chen from Fremd High School and Sarah Gonwa from Palatine High School.
