ST. CHARLES COUNTY, MO (KTVI) – A bright academic future lies ahead for two students in the Francis Howell School District after they achieved a perfect score on the ACT college placement exam.

The district announced Tuesday that David Yang from Francis Howell High School and Kayleigh Ammond from Francis Howell Central each received a 36.

Approximately 0.6 percent of all students who take the ACT earns a perfect score.

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.

Yang, a sophomore, ranks first in class and is enrolled in four AP classes. Meanwhile, Ammond was recently recognized as a commended scholar by the National Merit Scholarship Corporation and was named a commended student by the Bright Flight Program. She hopes to attend either Northwestern, Cornell, Harvard, or Washington University.
