For the Second Time This School Year— Another LRSD Student Makes Perfect ACT Score


Chandler Smith, son of Horace and Jennifer Smith, a junior at Little Rock Central High School, earned a top composite score of 36 on a recent ACT test. Nationally, while the actual number of students earning a composite score of 36 varies from year to year, on average, less than one-tenth of one percent of students who take the ACT earns the top score. Among test takers in the high school graduating class of 2013, only 1,162 of 1.8 million students earned a composite score of 36.

 

“It is no surprise to us that Chandler Smith made a 36 on the ACT; we know him to be a very driven student. What his perfect score doesn’t reflect is his amiable personality. His teachers describe him as a wonderful person and a joy to have in class,” said Little Rock Central High Principal Nancy Rousseau.

 

Smith began attending LRSD at age 3 as a student in the Rockefeller Early Childhood Education Program. He then attended Dunbar Middle School, where he was captain of the Quiz Bowl Team. When he was a sophomore he scored a 35 on the ACT. He is currently on the Quiz Bowl at Central High.

 

You may recall Parkview's Debra Rookey also scored a 36 on the ACT in the fall semester. 

 

The ACT consists of tests in English, mathematics, reading and science. Each test is scored on a scale of 1-36, and a student's composite score is the average of the four test scores. Some students also take ACT's optional Writing Test, but the score for that test is reported separately and is not included within the ACT composite score.

 

In a letter recognizing this exceptional achievement, ACT CEO Jon Whitmore said, "While test scores are just one of the many criteria that most colleges consider when making admission decisions, your exceptional ACT composite score should prove helpful as you pursue your education and career goals."

 

All major U.S. colleges accept ACT test scores, and exceptional scores of 36 provide colleges with evidence of student readiness for the academic rigors that lie ahead.
