College standardized test scores are up in the East Baton Rouge school district--the highest in five years.
Baton Rouge Magnet High School senior Jesse Tan helped raise those numbers.
He was the only student in the area to score a 36 on the ACT.
A perfect score only one out of every 3300 people can claim.
EBR Communications Director Chris Trahan says the East Baton Rouge curriculum is behind Tan's success.
