2 WMA students rank in top 5% on national AMC 8 exam

From Stuart Whitcomb, Wilbraham & Monson Academy Middle School Director:

Congratulations to our American Mathematics Competition 8 Award winners!

AMC 8 is a national competition sponsored by the Mathematical Association of America. This multiple choice examination is designed to promote the development and enhancement of problem-solving skills at a middle school level, and the exam itself utilizes non-traditional problems and approaches. The Wilbraham & Monson Academy Middle School students in Grade 6, Grade 7 and Grade 8 competed on Nov. 19.

Certificates were handed out to our Gold, Silver and Bronze honorees at our school meeting on Jan. 14. The top scorer in the Middle School, Tianyu "Joe" Yu '20, will have his name added to the plaque in the rotunda, with winners dating back to 2005.

This year was very special as two of our students, Joe and Muwei "Katherine" Xu '20, received Honor Roll status, which means they scored in the top 5% worldwide! Very impressive!
