Five Nicolet HS students get perfect ACT scores

by

GLENDALE, WI (WTAQ) - Only a relative handful of Wisconsin students got a perfect score of 36 on the ACT college entrance exam – but Nicolet High School in suburban Milwaukee is getting a handful of its own.

The Glendale school says five of its students were awarded perfect scores on the ACT during the last year. Twin sisters Rachel and Alexandra Heuer both achieved perfection as juniors.

Nicolet junior Ben Lawton was told earlier this year that he scored a 36.

It took a few months for two of last year’s seniors to be told of their perfection – Nancy Gao and Annie Jen.

Nicolet Superintendent Rick Monroe says it’s extremely rare for one school to have five ACT perfect scores within a year’s time.

Before the state’s Act-10 union law, Nicolet had been criticized for spending too much money on students – around $17,000 for each youngster. But Monroe says the extra money means more resources – which can also help spur achievement.
