A Colorado Springs teenager has achieved a rare accomplishment.

Noma Kim, a senior at Colorado Springs School, scored a perfect 36 on the math portion of his ACT test. He is quite modest about his achievement.

Noma tells 11 News that math comes easy to him and when he finished taking the test, he had a good feeling about how he did.

"My reaction was like wow! I really got that," Noma Kim smiled.

Noma has been excelling in math since enrolling at the Colorado Springs School four years ago.

Noma was born in Oklahoma, but grew up in South Korea. He and his brother moved to Colorado Springs to get an education.

"Here we have a choice what subjects we can study, but in Korean you usually don't," said Noma Kim.

Noma's younger brother Alex also goes to Colorado Springs School, and they have a competitive camaraderie centered around Noma's ACT results.

"He's trying to get over me, maybe he's looking to take perfect score in math and English," Noma Kim laughed.

Noma plans to attend Purdue University in the fall and study engineering.
