A pair of West Bend high school students earned a perfect score of 36 on their ACT college entrance exams.

Jacob Beine, a junior at West Bend East, and Liam Hupfer, a junior at West Bend West High School, both
earned the highest possible ACT composite score.

On average, less than one-tenth of one percent of students who take the ACT earn a top score. In the U.S. high school graduating class of 2016, only 2,235 out of nearly 2.1 million graduates who took the ACT earned a composite score of 36.

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.

Some students also take the optional ACT writing test, but the score for that test is reported separately and is not included within the ACT composite score.
