Senior, Hayden Frye earned a perfect 800 on the verbal portion of the SAT when he took the test in October.
Junior, Geoffrey McGee earned a perfect 800 on the math portion of the SAT when he took the test in December.
According to College Board, an agency that tracks high school seniors, out of roughly 1.66 million high school seniors graduating in 2012 who took the SAT, only 360 or 0.022 percent scored a composite score of 2400.
