Jason Messer, superintendent of the Manteca Unified School District, could remember years ago when just one student achieved a perfect 600 score in the California Standards Test.

That was during the infancy of the state’s Standardized Testing and Reporting exams.

This year the district had 48 students with perfect scores and was led by two achieving 600 in two subject areas.

Itsugo Yamayoshi, a ninth-grade student at Weston Ranch High, and August Knodt School fourth-grader Laray Dacus both accomplished the double-ace feat in the state exam taken last spring.

McParland led the district with 14 students scoring 600. Included were Harrison Heath, Michael Lee, Maverick Lin, Victorio Romo, Nicholas Trueba, Isabel Carman, Bradley Cliff, Lindsay Dorrett, Joshua Douma, Anthony Leonardo, Kyle Niendorf, Jaime Tellez Patino, Trevor Baum and Marissa King.
