We are very proud of Alexander and that he has joined such a select group of students and continues the tradition of students achieving a perfect ACT score at Olathe North. This marks the fourth consecutive year of a student achieving this level at Olathe North and is a testament to the high level of academic achievement and rigor that our school reflects."
Kolar is involved in marching band and jazz band and is on the Science Olympiad team. He is in the 21st Century Distinguished Scholars Math program and is also a Boy Scout.
