Armstrong Student Scores Perfect on ACT
Armstrong High School senior Mio Aoki-Sherwood achieved a perfect 36 score on the ACT, a standardized test used for college admissions.
The feat is so rare, less than one percent of all students achieve a perfect score. It’s 0.19% to be exact. What makes Aoki-Sherwood’s feat so remarkable is that it was her first time taking the test and she said she “really did not know what to expect.”
While grateful of her achievement, Aoki-Sherwood said she’s taking all the recognition in stride.
“I’m proud, and my family is also proud of this accomplishment, but both my family and I don’t like to put too much emphasis on standardized testing scores as these scores do not define or measure an individual’s worth,” Aoki-Sherwood said in a news release.
Aoki-Sherwood plans to attend Cornell College in Iowa and plans to possibly study environmental science.
