Janagan Ramanathan, son of Vasugi and Gajen Ramanathan, and a junior at Sartell High School, earned the highest possible ACT composite score of 36. On average, only around one-tenth of 1 percent of students who take the ACT earn a top score.
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.
“Janagan is a remarkable young man who is involved in academic, athletic, leadership and civic activities. I am very proud of his achievement,” said Sartell High School Principal Brenda Steve.
