On Tuesday, April 25, 2017 fifteen Oak Hill Academy students from grades 4-6 competed in an elementary mathematics contest sponsored by Mathleague.org. This state competition was held at the Kent Place School in Summit and included 120 qualifying students from around New Jersey. Mathleague.org sponsors a number of elementary school contests to be held throughout the country each school year. The contests are structured in such a way that students find the tests good preparation for other elementary and junior high math contests. Competitors begin at the regional level and then advance to their state’s competition. Top-scoring students at the state level are invited to compete in the National Championships held on June 24, 2017 at Texas A&M University in College Station, Texas.
