Congratulations, True!!!!
Senior Jerry Hudspeth is Druid Hills STAR Student for achieving the highest SAT score this year. Jerry selected Mr. Patel as STAR Teacher for having made the most significant contribution to his scholastic development. 
Matthew Dacey-Koo is an IB Junior at DHHS. This exceptional young man has scored PERFECT scores on both the ACT (36) AND the SAT (1600). Though it is unknown how many students have actually earned dual perfect scores, it is safe to say that this is an extremely rare occurrence. CONGRATULATIONS, Matthew!!! What an accomplishment!!!
