NEENAH (NBC 26) — A Neenah High School junior earned himself a perfect score on a recent ACT exam.

The Neenah Joint School District says Tony Marose got a 36 composite score. That does not necessarily mean he answered every question correctly, but a 36 represents a combination of scores in English, math, reading, and science. So, it is very possible Marose indeed got every question correct.

School district leaders say 1,386,355 students took the ACT last year. 2,542 of them earned a 36 composite score. That's 0.18% of all test takers who got a perfect score. The national average for the ACT is 19.5.

Marose has a 4.0 grade point average and participates in tennis and cross country.
