On Wednesday, December 12, 2018, sixteen Oak Hill Academy students competed in an elementary mathematics contest sponsored by Mathleague.org. This regional competition was held at the Passaic Gifted and Talented Academy. 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. Top-scoring students at qualifying meets held throughout the year are invited to compete at their state’s championship in the spring, and winners of the state championships are invited to a national championship in June.
