Three Long Beach High students achieve perfect ACT scores
Three Long Beach High School students earned the highest possible ACT composite score of a perfect 36.
On average, only around a tenth of one percent of students who take the ACT earn the top score. In the U.S., the high school graduating class of 2017, only 2,760 out of more than two million graduates that took the test earned a composite score of 36.
The three students from Long Beach who achieved this are Gracie Bush, Mac Dulaney, and Alexis Larosa. “I’m going to be a calculus teacher. I was really inspired by my teacher this year and my life has changed,” said Dulaney.
Bush said, “I was really excited. I stayed up until midnight to get my score and I immediately texted Mac.”
Larosa said, “I really would like to go to an Ivy League college. I think that would be really helpful and I would like to go into research, preferably in like neurological diseases.”
Long Beach High School Principal Larry Ramsey says these high scores are a testament to how awesome the students are, the quality of teaching, and the excellent parents and families in the Long Beach community.
