Two Lindbergh High School students have achieved perfect 2400 scores on the SAT college preparedness test. Seniors Tiffany Lee and Zach Nowlis are among only .02 percent of students nationwide who accomplished the feat in 2012, according to the SAT website. They are two of just 360 students to earn perfect scores out of more than 1.6 million total SAT takers nationwide.
For Tiffany the perfect score is becoming the norm and elevates her to an even higher level of achievement, since earlier this year she scored a perfect 36 on her ACT and last year achieved a perfect PSAT score.
LHS Class of 2013 Counselor and Guidance Director Jonathan Riethmeier said this is the first time in his memory at Lindbergh that a student has scored perfect on the SAT, let alone a perfect SAT and ACT in the same year. The last perfect ACT score at LHS was in 2008.
Both Zach and Tiffany are candidates for the International Baccalaureate diploma. Tiffany is a 2013 National Merit Semifinalist, and Zach is a 2013 National Merit Commended Student.
Zach is applying at Ball State University, the University of Hawaii, and Arizona State University. He also participates in wrestling and cross country.
Tiffany is interested in studying research medicine. This summer, she had the opportunity to work in a lab alongside two Washington University physicians as part of the University of Missouri-St. Louis’ Students and Teachers as Research Scientists program. She also participates in UNICEF, marching band, National Honor Society, Tri-M music honor society, French Honor Society, Science Olympiad and math club.
