Statistically its rare for that many people in a single school to get those scores. Hence, news. Ignoring that, its a local paper reporting it.
How is this news? A few years ago when I graduated high school, SAT's were based on the 1600 point system, and a few people got close to perfect.

These are used to rate students, not schools. The ACT and SAT are used to assess whether a student is smart enough to go to a particular college. We have other tests for what you are referring to. Both the ACT and SAT are tests that a high schooler takes only if they want to and many times don't even link the students to their high schools for statistical purposes. Adults wanting to return to school years or even decades after graduating high school usually have to take the tests for the same reason.
standardized tests are still BS though. to bad they've started using them over here as well. but not or the student, the scores are used to rate the schools not the students. better, but still stupid.
