Ridgefield Residents Achieve Perfect Math SAT Scores

Less than 15% of U.S. college-bound high school seniors achieve perfect SAT scores, but three Ridgefield residents scored perfectly on the Math portion of the SAT. In fact, this year six Immaculate High School seniors achieved perfect scores on their SAT math section, with two of those students achieving a perfect score on the Level II SAT math test and one achieving a perfect ACT composite score.

Sarah Bohling of Brookfield, Yuxuan Brittany Hu of Ridgefield, Wenqi Angela Lai of Brewster, Qianer Kris Lu of RidgefieldZhiwei Catherine Wang of Ridgefield and Mozhu Cindy Zhao of Bethel had a perfect score of 800 on the math portion of their SAT.

Yuxuan Brittany Hu and Wenqi Angela Lai also earned perfect scores (800) on the Math Level II SAT Subject Test, an advanced version of the regular SAT math portion. To succeed in the test, a student needs four years of math which must include precalculus and trigonometry. 

Sarah Bohling also earned a perfect composite score on her ACTs, achieving the full 36 points one can average of the four subject area scores—English, Reading, Math and Science.
