I've made no secret that I'm impressed with the fact that Oxford High School has eight students with a 35 or 36 on the ACT this year, and that it had the same number last year.
This is from a statistical standpoint, simply phenomenal.
According to the official ACT report, in 2013 twenty-seven Mississippi seniors scored 35 or 36 on the ACT. Eight of that 27 were from Oxford High School. A total of 27,749 seniors took the ACT in 2013; 217 Oxford seniors took it. So Oxford seniors accounted for about eight-tenths of one percent of ACT test-takers and produced almost 30 percent of those making a 35 or 36.
