March 5, 2019 –Roswell High School junior Robbie Vrolijk scored 36 on his ACT, a perfect composite score. He took the ACT once on December 8, 2018, though he previously took the PSAT and SAT several times each.
“A score of 36 on the ACT is rare and highly impressive,” explained Vrolijk’s school counselor, Jennifer Miner. “It is a testament to Robbie’s hard work and dedication to his studies. He should be honored for this achievement and I am thrilled for him!”
According to the ACT, “only around two-tenths of 1 percent of students who take the ACT earn a top score. In the U.S. high school graduating class of 2018, only 2,760 out of more than 2 million graduates who took the ACT earned a top composite score of 36.”
“We are so very proud of Robbie and his achievement,” said RHS principal Dr. Robert Shaw. “He has worked hard and taken advantage of the opportunities available to him. While a great ACT score is only one part of gaining admittance and being successful in college, there is no doubt this will open doors for him.”
He is the vice president of the Mathematics National Honor Society, and is a member of the Competitive Math Team and the National Honor Society. He plays alto saxophone in the marching band. Vrolijk plans to study biochemistry or biochemical engineering in college. On Honors Night, he was named one of RHS’ Georgia Governor’s Honors Program Finalists and was awarded the University of Rochester Xerox Award for Innovation and Information Technology.
Vrolijk is the son of Allison and Coen Vrolijk of Roswell. He has twin freshman brothers who also attend Roswell High School, Alex and Steven.
