Neither. The school just attracts very bright kids.

Separate privates and publics in not just sports but testing. It is clear publics have all the advantages

I don't remember which Ohio high school, but a brother and sister both scored perfect on the ACT very recently. While they compete with each other, that is their way to push each other to excel.

Way cool sibs.

I was thinking, of the 17, eight are seniors. Of the next twenty that scored a 35, letís say half of those are seniors. So can you imagine, at most schools you get a 35 you stand a good chance of being the valedictorian. Not at Walnut this year, that same kid would be 18th in line. Amazing.

It does say the 23 that missed it by a single point were seniors, fyi.

I hope nothing fishy went on at Walnut Hills, but the odds of scoring a perfect on the ACT are 1/10th of 1%...and they have 17 kids who score a 36...and 23 more that scored a 35. One of my sons recently scored a 36 in one of the sections and I was beyond happy, can't imagine my kid nailing the entire test. Pretty cool.
