September 8, 2014 – Congratulations are in order for Mentor High School senior Nick Clark for earning a perfect composite score on the ACT—36!
This is truly a tremendous accomplishment as ACT officials report that, on average, less than one-tenth of one percent of all students who take the ACT achieve the top composite score of 36. Nationwide, more than 1.85 million students from the class of 2014 took the ACT.
The ACT tests students in English, Mathematics, Reading and Science, and each section is scored on a scale of one through 36. The composite score is the average of the four section scores.
Nick continues to work hard in his senior year at Mentor High School with a full course load of Advanced Placement classes and an array of extracurricular activities in his schedule. He plans to continue his education after high school, possibly at Duke, Dartmouth, Ohio State or University of Minnesota. Nick isn’t certain what he’ll choose as a major, but is strongly considering studying biomedical engineering.
You will find Nick on the stage of the Fine Arts Center this fall playing the role of Jesse Kiplinger in the fall play, Plaza Suite. He serves as the vice president of Theater Club, president of the Tri-M Music Honors Society, and Concert Master of the symphony and Mannheim chamber orchestras. He is a three-year varsity letter winner in tennis, with plans to play in his senior season year this spring. Nick also is a member of the National Honor Society and has participated in Men’s Chorus and Top 25.
Nick says he is grateful to have support from his parents and brother, who is a double major at Purdue in chemical engineering and chemistry, as he works toward future goals.
