Retake ACT?

34 composite
31 english; 35 math; 34 reading; 36 science; 9 essay; 30 english + essay
(First try)

I also have 780 chem, 800 math level 2, and 800 chinese (native lol)

I'm pretty happy that I have those scores, but my school is basically SAT based, and my college counselor says 'you can retake the ACT if you really want too'. It seems like he thinks my english score isn't high enough...

Should I even retake the ACT? I want to major in engineering and apply to schools like MIT.
I know that my score is really high, but the english score is around the bottom 25 percent of the accepted students at these schools.
