State Board Honors Students with Perfect ACT Scores

Since 1960, high school students all across the nation have been taking the ACT test. This assessment measures a student’s general education knowledge and is an indicator of college-readiness. There are four subject areas (Math, English, Reading and Science reasoning. In 2005, an optional writing test was added.

Across the United States, 588 students achieved a perfect score of 36. Thirteen of those exceptional students go to school in Utah. We’re here today to recognize the outstanding achievement of those students.


Last school year, around one and a half million students took the ACT test. Around one quarter of them meet the benchmarks in all subject areas. The national average score last year was 21. In Utah, the average score was a little higher, at 21.8. Across the United States, 588 students achieved a perfect score of 36. Thirteen of those exceptional students go to school in Utah. We’re here today to recognize the outstanding achievement of those students. Not all of them were able to be here today, but we’d like to commend all of them for an extraordinary achievement.

The students recognized at the Board meeting today are:

  • Elizabeth Kimball, Rowland Hall
  • Kasper Kubica, West High School
  • Stevan Lehnardt, Skyline High School
  • Caleb Case, Park City High School

The State Board recognized 12 students who received perfect ACT scores in August, 2011. Here’s a link to that blog post: http://utahpubliceducation.org/2011/08/05/state-board-honors-students-with-perfect-act-scores/.
