Congratulations to Eden Prairie High School juniors Kieran Arora, Mitchell Cave, Nibir Sarma and Carter Swift for receiving perfect scores of 36 on their ACT tests. Less than one-tenth of one percent of all test takers earn this top score.
Since 2011, Eden Prairie High School has had at least one student post a perfect score each year. They include: Isaac Urbanski (2011), Brandon Barker (2012), Benjamin Spaeth (2013), Joshua Fourre (2013), Henry Zurn (2013), Jacob Dungan (2014), Ella Johnson (2014), Sasha Warbritton (2014), Amy Tan (2014), Lindsey Blanshan (2015), Neetij Krishnan (2016), Jack Oster (2016), Cole Dunbar (Class of 2017) and Mike Leiter (class of 2018).
The ACT consists of tests in English, mathematics, reading and science. Each test is scored on a scale of one to 36, and a student’s composite score is the average of the four test scores. Some students also take ACT’s optional writing test, but the score for that test is reported separately and is not included within the ACT composite score. ACT test scores are accepted by all major U.S. colleges. Exceptional scores of 36 provide colleges with evidence of student readiness for the academic rigors that lie ahead.
