Abilene High junior Kyle Curnutt has accomplished something that few students do.
He scored a 36 on the ACT – the highest possible composite score on an exam used to judge college readiness.
Curnutt was one of only 1,598 students who had a perfect score in the high school graduating Class of 2017. That was of 1.92 million test-takers, meaning he scored in the top one-tenth of 1 percent.
The ACT includes tests in English, mathematics, reading and science.
According to an Abilene ISD news release, Curnutt is currently ranked No. 1 academically in his Abilene High class and is its president.
The son of Casey and Mindi Curnutt, he is involved in golf, UIL Math, Key Club, National Honor Society, Future Philanthropists and FCA.
“After graduating in 2017, Curnutt plans to attend Texas A&M, Rice or Stanford to study mechanical engineering,” the Abilene ISD release said Wednesday.
