The National Fitness Standard for the cardiovascular pacer test is a score of 30-40 for a healthy 6-8th grade student. Obtaining a score of 100 or more is off-the-charts healthy and very difficult to accomplish unless one is in peak physical condition, according to Langley Middle School officials.

The school now has 26 students who have broken a score of 100.
