Tynes is Fifth Altamont Senior with a Perfect ACT
Julie Beckwith

Senior Wilson Tynes earned a perfect 36 on the ACT, the highest possible composite score. Wilson's score brings the total number of students in the class of 2020 with a 36 on the ACT to five. He joins classmates Sameer Sultan, Benjamin Tang, Ahad Bashir, and Robert Pigue 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, 10 Altamont students have earned a 36 on the ACT.

Congratulations Wilson on this huge accomplishment!
