Joseph DePorre, son of Susan and Vince DePorre and a junior at Ponte Vedra High School, scored a perfect 36 on every section of his ACT exam, earning the highest possible ACT composite score of 36.
The ACT consists of tests in English, mathematics, reading and science, each scored on a scale of one to 36. A student's composite score is the average of the four test scores. According to ACT, only around two-tenths of 1 percent of students who take the ACT earn a top score. In the U.S. high school graduating class of 2018, only 2,760 out of more than 2 million graduates earned a top composite score of 36.
This is DePorre’s first and only take of the ACT.
