A student at Lafayette High School has earned the highest possible composite score on the ACT.

Hannah R. Michel, a junior at Lafayette High, earned an overall composite score of 36 on the ACT. The feat, according to ACT, is only accomplished by one-tenth of one percent of students who take the test. 

Of the 2 million graduating seniors in 2017, ACT says that only 2,760 were able to earn the composite score of 36. 

The ACT covers four subjects, English, Mathematics, reading, and science and each is scored on a 1-36 scale. A composite score is the average of all four of those individual scores. 

Michel is the daughter of Yvette Arceneaux and the late Henry M. Michel and stepdaughter of Dawn E. Cormier.
