Whitefish Bay senior Wentong Zhang is now among those elite few.
Zhang, who has an unweighted GPA of 4.0 at Whitefish Bay, has also aced all 10 of the AP tests he has taken, earning a top score of 5. Zhang, who said he wants to pursue a major in mathematics, has participated in many state and national math competitions, including Program in Mathematics for Young Scientists at Boston University.
Outside of the classroom, Zhang has played varsity tennis all three years, is an editor-in-chief at the Tower Times student newspaper, and is an accomplished violinist who acts as concertmaster in the Milwaukee Youth Symphony Orchestra, Wisconsin State Honors Orchestra and the Whitefish Bay High School Orchestra.
Zhang is the fourth Whitefish Bay High School student to earn a perfect ACT score in the last five years. Previous students to accomplish this feat include Eric Schwartz (2010), Ben Ihde (2011), and Coretta Lemaitre (2013).
Last year, Whitefish Bay High School students scored an average of 26 on the ACT test – higher than any other public school in the state. It was also the 15th straight year of Whitefish Bay students scoring 25 or above on the nationally-normed college admissions test.
