Dobyns-Bennett Student Earns Perfect ACT Score
Dobyns-Bennett High School rising senior, Alexander Caviness, son of John Caviness and Sabrina Yu, 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, less than one-tenth of one percent of students who take the ACT earn a top score. Among test takers in the high school graduating class of 2014, only 1,407 of nearly 1.85 million students earned a composite score of 36.
 
“We are honored to once again have a Dobyns-Bennett student score a perfect 36 on the ACT,” said Dr. Chris Hampton, principal of Dobyns-Bennett. “We are very proud of Alex and this score is evidence of his hard work, dedication, and commitment to world class excellence.  I am excited to see the opportunities his efforts will yield over the course of his senior year and beyond.”
 
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.”  
 
ACT test scores are accepted by all major U.S. colleges. Exceptional scores of 36 provide colleges with evidence of student readiness for the academic rigors that lie ahead.
