Perfect Score

Main Photo
P.J. Gelinas Junior High School ninth-grader William Sun has accomplished something very few upperclassmen do by their senior year – he earned a perfect score on the ACT exam.

William’s score landed him in the top 1 percent of the more than 2.1 million students who took the test. However, this is not the first time he earned top honors on a college preparation exam; he earned a score of 1,500 out of a possible 1,600 on the SAT as an eighth-grader.

“I was excited to receive my high marks. It made all of the hard work I put into preparing for the exam worth it,” said William. “To those getting ready to take the test, I recommend they take many of the practice exams to get used to the style and pacing of the actual test. I believe the preparation leaves you feeling ready to succeed.”

William felt it was important to take the exam early in ninth grade to leave a positive impression on the colleges he hopes to attend. He plans to major in medical science.

P.J. Gelinas seventh-grade students learned about specific literary techniques when published author Kara Taylor conducted a series of in-school writer’s workshops.

In concurrence with the seventh-graders’ current study of realistic fiction writing, the workshop offered a pertinent lesson on the application of symbolism and imagery. Ms. Taylor spoke with the classes about the ways she uses these two approaches in her books and how they can significantly enhance the reader’s experience. The students also participated in a number of hands-on exercises, which helped to strengthen their understanding of a writer’s use of language to create a vivid image for the reader.
