Sixteen seniors in the Cherry Creek School District earned a perfect score of 36 on the 2016 ACT test. Less than one-tenth of one percent of all students who take the ACT earns a perfect score. Nationally, nearly 2.1 million students took the 2016 ACT and less than 2,000 of them earned a perfect score.  In Colorado, 58,616 students who are seniors this year took the test and 62 of them earned a perfect 36. That means that Cherry Creek Schools students represent 25% of the state’s perfect ACT scores.

“These students have accomplished something both rare and impressive,” said Dr. Harry Bull, superintendent of Cherry Creek Schools. “It speaks volumes about their commitment to academic excellence as well as the support they have received over the years from their teachers and families.”

The ACT is broken into four parts: English, math, reading and science reasoning. Each part is scored on its own scale of 1 to 36. A student’s overall test score is the average of those parts. The ACT is accepted by all major colleges and universities as one of the considerations for college admission.
