Learning and practicing analytical reasoning skills goes a long way towards the success in math contests. Even more importantly, when people do what they love, they usually do it quite well. And so, our students are very good when it comes to math competitions.
In 2017-2018, our teams finished among the best in Illinois, Midwest Region, and Nationally in a number of contests. Two of our students were Math Kangaroo National Champions; two students were CML National Champions; three students were Math League National Champions; one student earned the George Lenchner Medal, six students earned Gold Pin and twenty four students earned Silver Pin in MOEMS contest; many made various Honor Rolls and earned other individual awards.
