On Thursday, April 22, second grade students competed in a national math competition called the Noetic Learning Math contest. The written test consisted of 20 questions and took place over 45 minutes. Students leveraged their math skills in a practice test earlier this month.  The top 10% of all participants in each grade nationally will receive 'National Honor Roll' medals. The highest scorer in our 2nd grade received a 'Team Winner' medal and every student received a certificate acknowledging their effort. For students who scored in the top 10-percent, their name will be published on the Noetic Learning website. It was a difficult contest, but we have some very bright mathematicians who showed off their superior skills. We're proud of the excitement and enthusiasm our young learners have for mathematics. And, we're thrilled to announce our top placers: 

  • 1st Place: Sebastian Wright
  • 2nd Place: Colton O'Brien
  • 3rd Place: Gunnar Smith, Saige Park, Nico Samour, Henry Mooney
