Magnolia High School student, Nicholas Osborn, recently joined the elite group of high school students who have earned a perfect score on the ACT college admissions test. He is the son of Kirk and Maria Osborn and currently a senior this year at MHS. He took the ACT in June and is among the small percentage of students across the country who earned a 36 – the highest possible score – on the test.
On average, less than one-tenth of 1 percent of students who take the ACT earn a top score. In the U.S. high school graduating class of 2017, only 2,760 out of over 2 million graduates who took the ACT earned a composite score of 36.
The average score for Texas is 20.7, while the national average is 21.
Osborn is a member of National Honor Society, Spanish National Honor Society, Student Leadership, and Mu Alpha Theta Mathematics Honor Society. He enjoys rock-climbing, open water diving, kayaking, hiking, and being involved in youth group.
In college, Osborn hopes to study mechanical or chemical engineering.
