LADUE, MO (KTVI) – Eight seniors at Ladue Horton Watkins High School achieved a perfect score on their ACT college placement exams.

According to the Ladue School District, Hans Chan, Noah DiAntonio, Jake Loynd, Maya Mutic, Patrick Naughton, Jeffrey Wang, and Gloria Zhou, earned a 36. The eighth senior with the perfect score asked to remain anonymous.

The ACT is broken into four parts: English, math, reading, and science reasoning. Each part is scored on its own scale of 1 to 36. A student’s overall test score is the average of those parts. The ACT is accepted by all major colleges and universities.

Less than one-tenth of one percent of all students who take the ACT earns a perfect score.

All eight seniors plan on attending four-year colleges after graduation.
