Twenty Katy ISD Students Earn Highest Possible ACT ScoreTwenty Katy ISD Students Earn Highest Possible ACT Score2019-04-16T00:04:17Z<div class="ExternalClassDB2CE57344A94858A8A1024715D2DB1F"><p><span style="text-align:justify;">Katy Independent School District is celebrating a rare feat:  20 of its high school students recently found out that they obtained a perfect score, a 36, on the ACT exam.  Not only is this a major achievement for the district but it's a rare one as well, considering that less than .1 percent of all test takers earn the top score.  Only 3,741 out of the nearly 2.1 million students who took the ACT earned a composite score of 36. </span><br></p><p style="text-align:justify;">In a letter to these students ACT Chief Executive Officer Marten Roorda congratulated them for their outstanding performance and stated, "Your exceptional scores will provide any college or university with ample evidence of your readiness for the academic rigors that lie ahead."  The following Katy ISD students earned a perfect score on the ACT:</p><p style="text-align:justify;"><strong>Katy High School:</strong></p><ul><li>Jacob Severin</li></ul><p
