Grovogel gets perfect ACT score
DE PERE – West De Pere High School student Sawyer Grovogel, son of Timothy and Amy Grovogel and an incoming senior, has earned the highest possible ACT composite score of 36.
Approximately two-tenths of 1 percent of students who take the ACT earn a top score.
In the U.S. high school graduating class of 2018, only 3,741 out of more than 1.9 million graduates who took the ACT earned a top composite score of 36.
The ACT consists of testing 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.
The ACT is a curriculum-based achievement exam that measures what students have learned in school.
Students who earn a 36 composite score have likely mastered all of the skills and knowledge they will need to succeed in first-year college courses in the core subject areas.
ACT scores are accepted by all major four-year colleges and universities across the United States.
Grovogel is ranked no. 1 in his junior class of 232 students.
He has taken or will take 12 college credit and/or Advanced Placement courses in his high school career.
These academic achievements are all done while participating in soccer and football, student council, class officer, National Honor Society, SADD and science team at school.
In the community, Grovogel volunteers with the girls’ soccer program and was a junior parkee for De Pere Parks Recreation and Forestry.
He also holds down a part-time job.
