As students at Guam's John F. Kennedy High School celebrated their graduation, principal Kenneth Chargualaf reminded them of the many things they accomplished during their four years at the institution, the Guam Pacific Daily News reports.

Chargualaf told them that he was particularly impressed with their scores on the Stanford Achievement Test (SAT-10), stating that he has never seen a class that has reached their "level of sophistication."

According to its website, the SAT-10 is a multiple-choice test that shows parents and educators what students know and where they could improve. The data this exam provides strives to help teachers meet the requirements set in place by the No Child Left Behind Act as well as national and state standards.

As the graduates stood before him in their green and gold caps and gowns, Chargualaf said that he is also particularly fond of this class because they helped introduce a new robotics course to the school and performed high-quality productions.

At the conclusion of the ceremony, the principal told the students that due to their many academic achievements, he is confident that they will go far, the news outlet reports.

"Today marks the start of another volume of lifetime successes," he said.
