While I'm not quite sure if there is "something in the water" at Caddo Magnet High School in Shreveport, there is obviously a lot of gray matter in the classrooms.

There have been so many students at Caddo Magnet that have received perfect scores of 36 on the American College Testing, or A.C.T. college entrance exam, that the school has created it's own "36ers Club" and now the club has fourteen new members.

The list of those with perfect A.C.T. scores includes the following:

  • Alexander, Calvin Driver Jr.
  • Sophie Chen
  • Sidney Morgan Conduff
  • Nhi Hoang Dao
  • Hailey Elise Huguet
  • Raj Letchuman
  • Grace Isabella Miller
  • Andrew Christopher Minagar
  • Logan Brady O'Callaghan
  • Jack Henry Randall
  • Sebastian Alexander Schaan
  • Aashni Amber Shah
  • Arisha Sultana
  • Anjali Priya Veerareddy

What Makes This List Of Students So Impressive?

Keep in mind that less than 1% of all students tested will receive a perfect score.  And the list doesn't stop there.  Caddo Magnet also produced the following incredible test scorers:

  • 29 students with a 35
  • 14 students with a 34
  • 28 students with a 33
  • 22 students with a 32
  • 23 students with a 31
  • 34 students with a 30

Putting these incredible scores into perspective, you should know that the average score for a high school senior in the United States is 20.8.  Scoring somewhere between 23 and 24 is sufficient for entry into most universities across the country.

Along with this incredible list of overachievers, Caddo Magnet can also boast that they are home to Ananya Bhatia, pictured above.  She is only one of three Louisiana students to be named to the 59th class of U.S. Presidential Scholars. According to U.S. Secretary of Education, Miguel Cardona, Ananya is one of only 161 high school seniors recognized by the U.S. President for their accomplishments in academics, the arts, and career and technical education fields.

Cordona says, "U.S. Presidential Scholars have always represented the future of our country and the bright promise it holds. I want each of these remarkable students to know: your passion and intellect, pursuit of excellence, and spirit of service are exactly what our country needs. On behalf of President Biden, I am delighted to join your family, friends, and communities in celebrating your accomplishments. Aim high, share your talents, and continue embracing opportunities to lead as your exciting future unfolds.”

Congratulations to Ananya and all those who have performed so well on the A.C.T.!

And a huge debt of gratitude to the staff and administration at Caddo Magnet, for a job well done!
