Washington Senior Earns Top ACT Score

October 14, 2015 10:15 AM

Congratulations to Washington High School senior Jacqueline Fashimpaur on earning the highest possible ACT Composite score of 36. Nationally, while the actual number of students earning the top score varies from year to year, on average, less than one-tenth of 1% of students who take the ACT earns the top score. Among test takers in the high school graduating class of 2015, only 1,598 of more than 1.92 million students earned an 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.


ACT test scores are accepted by all major US colleges. Exceptional scores of 36 provide colleges with evidence of student readiness for the academic rigors that lie ahead.


At Washington, Jacqueline is president of Drama Club, president of the Adastra organization, and co-president of the Washington Mock Trial team. She is also active with the speech program.
