Daniel Fu

Just days after learning he was named a National Merit Scholarship Semifinalist, Johnston High School senior Daniel Fu has also earned another high academic accolade: A perfect score on his ACT.

The ACT is a nationwide college entrance exam and tests students in the areas of English, mathematics, reading, and science, measuring skills needed for success in the first year of college. Test-takers can score up to a 36 on any of the sections and/or earn an overall “perfect” composite score up to a 36.

According to prepscholar.com, out of the 2.03 million students in the Class of 2017 who took the ACT, only 2,760 students – orĀ 0.136% – in the nation earned a perfect 36 composite score. The average composite score is 21.

Johnston High Schools has had only a handful of students score a perfect 36 in recent years. Congratulations to Daniel on this outstanding academic accomplishment!
