FHN’s James Dohrman Earns Perfect ACT Score

Posted on 10/07/2016

We all make mistakes from time to time, but some of us come a little closer to perfection. Francis Howell North (FHN) High School has so many bright students learning within its walls. James Dohrman, however, stood out among his peers by becoming one of the few in the country who earned a perfect score on his American College Testing (ACT) exam.

“James is a fantastic young man,” FHN Principal Andy Downs said. “He is extremely intelligent, and we are very proud of him and his accomplishment.”

The ACT is a standardized assessment taken by high school students to measure achievement for college admissions. The average score nationally is around 20 to 21. James scored a perfect 36.

James is the son of Rebecca and Greg Dohrman, and doesn’t shy away from taking the tough classes. He has been recognized as an Advanced Placement (AP) Scholar (click here to read about that); and is currently taking several AP classes, including English Literature Composition, Statistics, Calculus BC Physics II, and World History. He’s also in gifted classes, as well as taking Pre-AP Spanish III. His grades? You guessed it – all A’s.

Over the summer, James graduated from the prestigious STARS program, or Students and Teachers as Research Scientists program, at the University of Missouri-St. Louis (UMSL). Click here for an article about his experience with STARS.

James is also deeply involved in the robotics club in FHSD, Raven Robotics, a team which has accomplished much and is comprised of students from all high schools in the District.
