MIHS junior perfect ACT

Alex Hill, a junior at Mercer Island High School, has earned the highest possible ACT composite score of 36.

Only about two-tenths of one percent of students who take the ACT earn a top score.

The ACT consists of tests in English, mathematics, reading and science, each scored on a scale of 1-36. A student’s composite score is the average of the four test scores. The score for ACT’s optional writing test is reported separately and is not included within the ACT composite score.

The ACT is a curriculum-based achievement exam that measures what students have learned in school. ACT scores are accepted by all major four-year colleges and universities across the US.

Reception on Feb. 11

The Mercer Island PTA Council will honor 24 students with district awards in the annual Reflections arts competition. A reception will be held at 6:30 p.m. on Monday, Feb. 11, in the commons at Islander Middle School.
