The Pony, ACTing Out

Hey, diddle diddle...time solved the riddle...The Pony is over the moon.

ACT scores were posted yesterday. On his first official attempt, the sophomore Pony clinched a composite score of 33. Perhaps over the moon is a bit of a stretch. The Pony is shooting for a perfect score of 36. Best of luck to him. He's going to take it again in the spring. Too bad he won't have had a trigonometry course by then. That was his low subject, with a 27. Thank the Gummi Mary, his English, Science, and Reading were all 35s to balance him out.

Another Newmentia student, a senior, also scored a 33 composite. Which speaks well of our little Hillmomba educational institution, with its enrollment under 300 for 9-12. I only regret that my little Pony did not have my best old ex-teaching buddy, Mabel, to curry him in math.

The Missouri average composite score last year was 21.6, which is near or slightly over the national average, I believe. You can check out ACT stats here.

Hillmomba has a good school system. Really. That's why I drive my kids there with me, rather than send them to the bigger think-tank where we reside.

HooRah, Newmentia!

Congratulations to Your Little Pony. He made it through all the hoops...

(I'm sure you're all Prancer-cizing right now in celebration.)

We are. I think I'm the best...but Farmer H has delusions of Prance-deur.
