Highlands Student Scores Perfect 36 on ACT
Highlands High School senior Maria Broering earned a perfect score of 36 on the ACT test.
June marked Broering's fourth attempt at the test.
She credited online practice tests, the ACT app, and AP courses, and teachers at Highlands for bringing her to a perfect score.
“I love going to school at Highlands,” said Broering. “I am so grateful for all of my wonderful teachers who have always pushed me to do my best.”
Broering is also a member of the National Honor Society, the National English Honor Society, and Spanish Club. She serves as secretary of the Math Honor Society and runs cross country and track and plays soccer.
She will play NCAA Division I soccer at Ball State University in Muncie, Indiana where she plans to study to become a registered dietitian.
“Maria is a hard-working student who knows what she wants,” said Laura Schnitzler, Highlands High School guidance counselor. “She pushes herself to do her best, and it is no surprise she achieved a 36 on the ACT. We are proud of her achievement!“
Nationally, only about one-tenth of 1% of all students who take the ACT earn a score of 36.
