Delighted but humble 11th graders Titus Wu, Hanah Lee and Jeffrey Wang greeted the media Tuesday afternoon at the school’s library after the official announcement went out that these three students achieved a rare phenomenon. They all scored a perfect 2,400 score, which is rare. In 2012 about 1.6 million SAT tests were taken nationwide with only 360 students reaching perfection (0.0225%). Three at the same high school is extremely rare.
Titus Wu, originally from Taiwan hopes to attend NYU or UCI to study journalism with an emphasis on politics. Hanah Lee would like to attend Stanford University to study biology. Jeffrey Wang, who thought he was “pranked” when he first heard the news of his perfect score has yet to decide on a college. Both Hanah Lee and Jeffrey Wang cited their favorite teacher and class as AP Biology taught by Mr. Monden. Titus Wu cites his curiosity for current events and reading great literature the motivational factor behind his perfect score.
The young men and women are very active in their school with numerous clubs and after school activities which also include active volunteerism within the community.
