4 Caddo Parish Students Get a Perfect Score on the ACT
Caddo Magnet High School's famous "36ers Club" has four new members today! In case you didn't know, the group is made up of students that have scored a perfect 36 out of 36 on the ACT (American College Testing) entrance exam.
That brings the total number of new club members in the last 5 years to an astounding 19! Keep in mind that less than half of 1% of students that take the test get a perfect score. When you take that in to account, it becomes extremely clear that Caddo Magnet is doing something extremely right.
The latest star students to earn this rare achievement are all Caddo Magnet High seniors. According to KTBS, they are: Joseph Clary, Lilah Estes, Henry Jones, and Ameesha Paralikar - but they're not the only students at the school to ace the test this year. CMHS seniors Diya Desai and Rami Helmy, juniors Sarah Johnson and Abigail Nickelson, and freshman Andrew Minegar all joined the club this year as well.
Just to put that into perspective, the average score for a high school senior in the United States is 20.8. Scoring somewhere between 23 and 24 would put you squarely into most universities across the country, and a 33 would have you Ivy-League bound.
