Daddy is very proud
Posted by wolfhammer1 on Monday, February 16, 2015 7:10 PM
I am very proud of my son Thomas. He is 10 years old and took the ACT a few weeks ago. We got his scores today and his composite score was a 30. He scored a 32 in math, 29 in science, 30 in reading and 28 in English. He is in sixth grade and is taking calculus one-on-one with a college professor at a local university. He almost matched his old man on the scores, but I was 17 when I took the test.

Dang, isn't the normal age for sixth grade age 12? Sounds like you have a prodigy on your hands. My kids are 9 and 6, but feels just as good when they achieve something cool. Time for dinner out to celebrate! Congrats!

Congrats to Thomas!  Sounds like dad needs to get him a good kit or two as a congrat present. Wink Wink Wink

Jim, unfortunately, he is not into airplanes or models yet.  Right now, he is working on creating languages.  Oh, well, I still have time to corrupt him.  :-)

Wow, he is way above average.

I got a 25 on mine when I was a high school senior.
