Test Masters welcomes Joey Gu to its growing ranks of SAT perfect score alumni.  I sat down with Joey recently to talk about this impressive achievement (each year, under .02 % of high school students can boast a 2400 score on the SATs), his future ambitions, and about his experience with Test Masters.Joey Gu's Perfect Score

No two high school students are the same, and Joey certainly comes from an eclectic background.  Born in Beijing, he moved to Houston at the age of three, and attends Cinco Ranch High School in Katy, TX, where he is President of the National Honor Society and vice president of the Mu Alpha Theta math club.  In his spare time, Joey enjoys music (he plays alto saxophone and piano), tennis, and games.  Although Joey still isn’t sure where he wants to go for college, he knew that a high score on the SAT would allow him to take control over his future, and he chose Test Masters to get him there.
