Bloomington students earn top ACT scores

Jefferson High School junior Jillayne Clarke and senior Emily Wammer have earned perfect scores on the ACT. On average, less than one-tenth of one percent of students taking the ACT earn a top score of 36.

Clarke has completed both the University of Minnesota Talented Youth Mathematics Program and Bloomington’s Dimensions Academy High School, taking college-level courses in physics, chemistry, computer science and math. She completed a 10-week intensive Spanish course at Normandale Community College this summer. Clarke also works as a tutor at Mathnasium and is the office manager for Mighty Matt Lawn Care.

Wammer is a member of National Honor Society and Jefferson’s Science Olympiad team. She is involved in volleyball, track and field and band (saxophone) and volunteers at Fairview Southdale Hospital. She plans to study biology.

The ACT consists of tests 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. ACT test scores are accepted by all major U.S. colleges and provide evidence of student readiness for the academic rigors of postsecondary study.
