While the overall state report for Kentucky’s High School Class of 2012 on the ACT college entrance test won’t be released until August, individual students and schools have already been sharing the good news about outstanding, top 36-point score performance. Kentucky’s trend in this rarified atmosphere at the top of the academic heap already looks like it will be impressive.
Last year, according to Table 2.1 in the Kentucky ACT Profile Summary Report for 2011, a total of only 12 students in Kentucky’s graduating class of 2011 achieved the top ACT Composite Score of 36. That includes both public and private school students.
So far, more juniors and seniors taking the test in this school term posted 36-point scores. The Kentucky School Boards Association says so far 22 students in the state reportedly have ‘max-ed’ the ACT this year.
Given those numbers from the School Boards Association, it seems likely the Class of 2012 is going to post improved ACT ‘top score’ statistics when that information is released. And, the Class of 2013 may look even better.
