CANTON, Miss. — A sixth-grader from Mississippi can start looking through college catalogs.
Rhodes, who attends Huey Porter Middle School, initially was not impressed with her score.
"Well, I thought, 'That's kind of low,'" Rhodes told WLBT. "But then my parents reminded me that people who were 18 were supposed to be taking this, and I'm 12."
Rhodes said she is studying so she can earn a higher score the next time she takes the ACT.
Rhodes' parents were stunned by the score.
"My husband opened it first, and he told me the score and I didn't believe him," Cheleta Rhodes told WLBT. "I expected her to do well, but not that well."
Kristen Rhodes had some simple advice for students taking the ACT.
Rhodes shared her advice for other students aiming for a high score on the test.
