Molly Wooster, an incoming junior at Lee’s Summit West High School, has earned the highest possible ACT composite score of 36. On average, fewer than one-tenth of 1 percent of students who take the test achieve a top score.
Wooster is the daughter of Jeff and Jennifer Wooster. She was selected to attend the Missouri Scholars Academy, serves as captain of the Junior Varsity Science Bowl, is vice-president of the Lee’s Summit West Kindness Council, volunteers weekly at Abundant Life Church and participates in robotics, math club/Missouri Math League, the Spanish Honor Society and Youth Advisory Council. In addition, she is an International Baccalaureate diploma candidate.
The ACT consists of tests in English, mathematics, reading and science, each scored on a scale of 1 to 36. A student’s composite score is the average of the four test scores. Some students also take the optional ACT writing test, but that score is not included in the composite score.
