Five USC students achieve perfect score on ACT
Five Upper St. Clair High School students earned perfect scores on the 2017 ACT. Seniors Kevin Chen, Steven Cheung, Michael Hrehocik and Abigail Wagner as well as junior Dina Leyzarovich are among less than one-tenth of one percent of ACT test takers earning the top composite score of 36.
Among the high school graduating class of 2016, only 2,235 of more than 2 million students earned a perfect ACT Composite score of 36.
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.
“We are proud to see our students achieving at the highest possible levels,” Dr. Louis Angelo, Upper St. Clair High School principal, said. “I am amazed and inspired by our students’ commitment to their academics as well as to the arts and athletics.”
Overall Upper St. Clair High School’s average ACT scores exceeded the Pennsylvania and national averages in all subject areas. Upper St. Clair’s composite score registered 26.5 compared to Pennsylvania’s 23.7 and the national average of 21.0.
