Wong calls Djan ”an exceptional asset” to the Mc Clatchy community.
“Never mind that he’s an outstanding student who never misses the mark academically,” she says.
“He’s been an athlete and a real leader, twice serving as student body president.
He exudes school spirit and all that is good about being a Lion.” Overall, the HISP Class of 2016 has an impressive college acceptance record.
(For context, only 504 of the 1.7 million students who took the SAT in 2015 scored a 2400.) “I was completely shocked that I got into Harvard,” says Hackett, a member of CKM’s nationally ranked debate team.
“And then I just kept getting acceptance letters.” Hackett chose Stanford over Harvard, in part because of its close proximity to Sacramento.
Mc Clatchy High School’s Humanities and International Studies Program were accepted into every top tier college to which they applied, including Harvard, Stanford, Yale, Princeton, Brown and Cornell.
“They are amazing.” Tony Hackett applied to Stanford, Harvard, Yale, Brown, Cornell, USC, UCLA, UC Berkeley, UC San Diego, Cal Poly San Luis Obispo and the University of Washington. Harvard was the first to accept Hackett, a 4.0 grade point average student who scored a perfect 2400 on the SAT.
“After 28 years in the classroom and thousands of students, it never ceases to amaze me that I can still be amused and energized by that one special kid in the room,” says Wong. “I looked into Stanford and Harvard and it was a tough choice,” he says. The campus had more character and the people seemed so genuine.” Djan’s parents are from Ghana.
“This year that kid is Tony Hackett.” Djan applied to Stanford, Yale, Harvard, Princeton, Georgetown, UCLA, UC Berkeley and UC San Diego. His mother is a biological researcher at UC Davis and his father is a self-employed city planner.
