Oh…and to Ephemerous, a Bostonblogger comrade, I did not see Latin Academy on the list, but hey there’s always next year!
Truthfully, though, I don’t place much value in these newsweek rankings, but it’s still nice to be recognized. What I do put value in is the following excerpt from the BLSA newsletter:
“Described as a “Science fair powerhouse” in a recent Boston Globe article, our Boston Latin Science program sent 18 student entries to compete in the Massachusetts State Science Fair at MIT on Saturday, May 26. There were over 400 competitors overall. Alexandra Montes, program director, reports that “the students did a phenomenal job taking 11 top prizes. Congratulations to all of the participants. Special recognition goes to: Honorable mention: Aleksandr Okonechnikov ’07, Anita Lok ’07, Alexander Zhu ’08; Third place: Jasmine Howell ’07, Olivia Schwob ’10, Lorenzon Albalba ’09; Second place: Xiaoli Mi ’08, Susan Wang ’08, Yiling Chen ’09; First place: Anartya Mandal ’09, Patrick Li ’08.”
Good job Wolfpack geeks. Sumus Primi.
