BHS grad now at Harvard shares advice with students

Older and wiser after completing his first semester at Harvard University, Trang Truong returned to Burnsville High School to share advice about the college experience with current students in December.

The 2017 graduate reports that Burnsville High School prepared him for college success. Because the school is diverse, he was comfortable relating to all kinds of people at Harvard. Other students, who had not attended a diverse high school, had culture shock.

BHS student makes school history

Trang Truong made history at Burnsville High School this year with two extraordinary accomplishments.

First, as an 11th grade student last year, Trang aced a major national test by earning a perfect score of 1520 on the Preliminary Scholastic Aptitude Test (PSAT). That alone is amazing, but then Trang earned a perfect score of 36 on the ACT Composite, another national college admissions exam.
