May 13, 2019 ~ Savindu Buluwana, a sophomore at Olathe North High School, has earned a perfect score of 36 on the ACT. Nationally, while the actual number of students earning a composite score of 36 varies from year to year, less than one-tenth of 1 percent of students taking the ACT earn a top score.
“We are so excited for Savindu,” Olathe North Principal Jason Herman said. “This is an amazing accomplishment and is an example of the education that all our students in Olathe receive. Only being a sophomore means he will accomplish more great academic feats over the next two years.”
He is involved in Boy Scouts, Science Olympiad, Scholars and Science Bowl, DECA and the Distinguished Scholars Academy.
