Congratulations to 6th grader, Alex Mitchell for his 8th place finish in the State Level National Geographic Bee, which was held on April 1st, at Rowan University. Approximately 500 schools participated in the School Level Geography Bee, and 116 students from that group qualified to participate in the State competition.
Alex achieved a perfect score in the Preliminary Round of the competition, which automatically qualified him to participate in the final round, in which he achieved his eighth place finish!
“We didn’t feel our children were being academically challenged in our town’s public school system. Our experience with Oak Hill Academy has far exceeded our expectations. Our three older children were so advanced academically upon their graduation from Oak Hill, that they all were accepted to a top boarding school. Our eldest is now in college, and was recently elected President of her class.”
