Harmony: Home of Perfect SAT

SAT Perfect

L. Lin, 11th grade student at Harmony School of Advancement, received a perfect score of 2400 on SAT after scoring another perfect score in PSAT earlier this year.


Receiving a perfect score on SAT is a tough nut to crack. It is a rare accomplishment achieved by only fewer than 300 students every year out of 1.5 million. That means, approximately one student in 5,000 taking the SAT gets a perfect score of 2,400. Harmony family congratulates Mr. Lin for this unequaled feat.
