Should I take the ACT again?

Ok so I am a current Junior, just go my February scores back and dont know if I should take the test again.
I have taken the ACT 3 times before first: 23 second: 24 third: 27
My english score went up 5 point to a 32 which really helped me get that 27. Never thought that I would be able to do that on my third try and I'm kind of worried that if I take it again my score might go down. I might have just gotten really lucky because i didnt think I did that well.
I am not applying to any elite colleges, just state universities. But at one of the schools that I am looking at if I can get a 28 on the ACT than I can get a generous scholarship. Do you think 27 was my peak? I just dont want my score to go down and lose courage. TWO QUESTIONS: Should I take it again? what do you think my chances are of increasing it one more point to a 28 ? THANKS
