SHS Senior Achieves Perfect ACT Score

Shorewood's Katherine Kuchin is among only 12 students statewide to score a perfect 36 on the ACT; an achievement reached by only one-tenth of 1 percent of those who take the college admission and placement test.

Shorewood High School senior Katherine Kuchin was among 12 students in the state to achieve a perfect 36 score on the ACT college admission and placement exam this testing year, according to data released by ACT late last week.

Nationally, roughly one-tenth of one percent receives a perfect score. Among test takers in the high school graduating class of 2011, only 704 of more than 1.6 million students earned a composite score of 36.

In Wisconsin, roughly 70 percent of high school students took the ACT test, according to ACT.

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.

ACT test scores are accepted by all major U.S. colleges, and exceptional scores of 36 provide colleges with evidence of student readiness for the academic rigors that lie ahead.

Dare I say that this is proof that Walker's reforms haven't destroyed our public education system?

Foolish comment.

Dare I say that this bright young lady was fortunate to have received 95% of her public education before Walker began to destroy our schools?
