Garces Memorial High School has a lot to be proud of after one student received the highest score possible on their ACT exam and a near perfect score on their SAT.
Cory Chianello, a senior, is actively involved with the campus robotics team and the STEM program. He is also a member of the cross country and swimming teams.
"We are very proud of his hard work and dedication to his education," stated Garces Memorial High School in a press release.
The ACT consists of English, mathematics, reading and science test sections, each scored on a scale of 1–36. A student's composite score is the average of the four test scores. There is also an optional writing section.
Scores on the SAT range from 400 to 1600. The exam consists of four sections: reading, writing and language, math (no calculator and calculator sections) and an optional essay portion.
