Waldorf Watch: Six Students Receive High Scores in 2017 American Mathematics Competition

On February 15th, approximately 50 students from the Waldorf School of Garden City participated in the annual American Mathematics Competitions (AMC 10/12) contests. The AMC 10/12 is the nation’s leading mathematics competition for high school students and is designed to cultivate the mathematical capabilities of the next generation of problem solvers. In 2017, approximately 180,000 students worldwide participated in the AMC 10/12.

Among our Waldorf students, sophomore Anthony Sokolov, freshman Hao “Edward” Zhang, and sophomore Qingwei “Mike” Meng won first-, second- and third- place awards, respectively, in the AMC 10 division, and senior Weien Guo, junior Daniel Zhuang, and senior Zhongxin “Crystal” Zheng, won first-, second- and third- place awards, respectively, for the AMC 12 division.

High School Math Teacher, Michael Gentile thanked all the students who participated for their hard work and preparation for the competition. He is excited to see how participation continues to increase each year.

The Waldorf School of Garden City is a college preparatory day school teaching early childhood through grade 12. Students take the American Mathematics Contest (AMC) in school during the month of February. For more information about the AMC test visit their website.
