The future is bright for three Franklin High School students who recently scored a perfect 36 composite score on the ACT.

Kate Sanborn, Olivia Byrd and Luis Sanchez Boedo put their knowledge to the test and aced the exam in July.

Kate and Olivia are both members of the Franklin Band, and Luis is on the Franklin High boys basketball team. All three students know the importance of balancing their academics with their extracurricular activities.

“Olivia, Kate and Luis are all exceptional learners with a strong desire to achieve at superior levels,” said FHS Assistant Principal Jason Eubanks. “We are quite proud of their body of work at Franklin High thus far and know without a doubt they will achieve at superior levels in life.”

The ACT is a college-readiness exam that is divided into four sections: English, math, reading and science. Each section is graded on a scale that tops out at 36. The composite score is the average of all four section scores.
