Two more seniors honored for perfect ACT scores

The Cherry Creek School District is proud to recognize two more members of the Class of 2017 who have earned a perfect score of 36 on the 2016 ACT test.  Seungmin Lee and Daniel Schlatter, both seniors at Cherry Creek High School, join sixteen other seniors from across the Cherry Creek School District who achieved perfection on the nationally administered, standardized test. Because of a technical problem with the system that reports the scores, Schlatter and Lee were initially left off the list of students who earned perfect scores.

"We are so proud of Daniel and Seungmin and want to congratulate them on this remarkable academic accomplishment,” said Dr. Harry Bull, Superintendent of Cherry Creek Schools. “They are part of an elite group of scholars; nationally, less than 2,000 students earned a perfect score on the 2016 ACT test.”

That’s less than one-tenth of one percent of the nearly 2.1 million students who took the test. In Colorado, 58,616 seniors took the test last year and only 62 of them earned a perfect 36. That means that Cherry Creek Schools students represent 29% of the state’s perfect ACT scores.

Congratulations to all 18 CCSD students who earned perfect scores:
•    Daniel Schlatter – Cherry Creek High School
•    Seungmin Lee – Cherry Creek High School
•    Allan Chen – Cherry Creek High School
•    Valliappan Chidambaram – Eaglecrest High School
•    Julia Frostholm – Cherry Creek High School
•    Katelyn Givan – Cherry Creek High School
•    Alexander Martin – Overland High School
•    Garrett Maus – Grandview High School
•    Danish Mohammed – Grandview High School
•    Kendra Neumann – Cherry Creek High School
•    Diem Nguyen - Grandview High School
•    Sarah Shapard – Overland High School
•    Sean Smith – Cherry Creek High School
•    Andrew Starr - Grandview High School
•    Avi Swartz – Cherry Creek High School
•    Nyle Sykes – Cherry Creek High School
•    Abigail Weeks – Cherry Creek High School
•    Andrew Ying – Cherry Creek High School

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.
