Nine Mystic Valley Regional Charter School students, members of its Class of 2020, achieved scores that place them within the top 1 percent of high school students nationwide on the SAT and ACT exams. Seven students eclipsed or equaled the 1500 barrier on the SAT while four students (including two who also recorded a 1,500 or better on the SAT) scored a 34 or higher on the ACT. As mentioned these students find themselves in rarefied air, joining only 1 percent of high school students nationally.
“This is a testament to our entire school community,” MVRCS Assistant Director Mr. Matthew Stone said. “When I see these results, I look beyond the numbers, percentiles and statistics. I look at all the tireless work and dedication these young men and women have exerted to get to this point.”
Students equaling or surpassing the 1,500 barrier on the SAT are: Abigail Bemis (Melrose), Stacey Fabo (Saugus), Sam Lyon (Melrose), Hanhminh Nguyen (Medford), David Nguyen (Everett), Alfie Tsang (Saugus) and Qunynh-An Vo (Malden). Bemis and Vo are joined by John Malone (Medford) and Michael Selter (Stoneham) in scoring a 34 or better on their ACT.
