MONTGOMERY, Ohio -- Tri-State students continue to display jaw-dropping intellect with the latest round of ACT scores.

Twenty Sycamore High School students achieved a perfect score on the ACT, the school district said, and another 33 students were one point shy of a perfect score (full list of students below).

Twenty is the highest number of students with perfect scores recorded in the school’s history, according to Sycamore school officials.

"We are so proud of all of our students and this is a shining example of some of their hard work. This accomplishment is a credit to the students, their families, their teachers, and our community,” said Doug Mader, Sycamore High School principal.
