Neiman Earns 36 on ACT
Julie Beckwith

Junior Amelia Neiman earned a perfect 36 on the ACT, the highest possible composite score. Her score brings the total number of current Altamont students with a 36 on the ACT to seven. Amelia joins seniors William Coleman, Sameer Sultan, Benjamin Tang, Ahad Bashir, Robert Pigue, and Wilson Tynes in this rare accomplishment.

On average, only one-tenth of one percent of all test takers receive the top score. Among recent U.S. high school graduates just 2,760 out of the more than two million students who took the ACT reached a composite score of 36. The ACT consists of tests in English, mathematics, reading and science, each scored on a scale of 1–36. A student's composite score is the average of the four test scores.

During the past five years, 12 Altamont students have earned a 36 on the ACT.

Congratulations Amelia on this huge accomplishment!
