Our 2019-2020 Achievements

Dec 9, 20200 comments

The 2019-2020 school year was filled with many challenges, unprecedented changes and opportunities for growth.
Throughout the uncertainty and turbulence of 2020 one thing remained steadfast and true – our students’ eagerness to learn and our faculty’s ability to create an environment that fosters a true love of learning. We pride ourselves on being able to develop learning experiences that perpetuate the successes and achievements of our students. In fact, this year we were awarded one of our most esteemed and highest achievements to date – an invitation for one of our former students (class of 2020) to write the American Invitational Mathematics Examination (AIME).

We are proud of our students and faculty for demonstrating that we can keep the pace of learning, personal growth and intellectual achievement despite any challenge!

We are now excited to share with you our 2019-2020 achievements!
