Juneau Congratulates Montana Students with Perfect ACT Scores

ACT Scores on the Rise for Montana Students

HELENA – Montana Superintendent of Public Instruction Denise Juneau today issued her congratulations to the four Montana students who earned perfect scores on the ACT test for the 2009-2010 school year.  Two students from Great Falls and two students from Missoula earned perfect scores.  Four students – two from Missoula and two from Great Falls – scored a perfect 36 on the test this year. 

“These scores are not only an indicator of academic skill, they are a reflection of hard
work, dedication, and determination,” said Juneau.

In Montana, average ACT scores for all students have risen over the last five years from an average of 21 in 2005 to an average score of 21.2 in 2009. This year, 1,063 students earned a composite score of 27 or higher.  That number is an increase from last year’s 974. 
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.

Montana Students with perfect ACT Scores include:

Kaitlyn M.Carlson, Charles M Russell High School, Great Falls
April M. Dower, Great Falls High School, Great Falls     
Isabel S. Huff, Hellgate High School, Missoula     
Alec A. Patterson, Hellgate High School,  Missoula
