Menomonee Falls High School students have reached new heights, according to the latest round of ACT results that show record results.
A total of 277 students, or 74 percent, of students took the ACT as juniors or seniors in 2012-13, earning a composite score of 23.3 out of 36 possible points. Combined, it's the highest percentage and highest number of students earning the highest score since the state began keeping test records in 1995, according to a press release from the Menomonee Falls School District.
The ACT is a college readiness assessment that tests students in English, math, reading and science. Many colleges use ACT scores as an admission requirement.
This is the sixth time in the last decade the district's composite score has reached 23 or better. The composite score released in 2012 was 22.9.
