Sterling School recently hosted the 2018 American Mathematics Competitions (AMC) 8 mathematics competition for all interested 5th, 6th, 7th and 8th graders. Our top scorer was 5th grader, Brandon Xu. His score of 22 was the second highest in the state of South Carolina and earned him an AMC Distinguished Honor Roll recognition. Our school team, made up of the three top scorers in our school competition, was Brandon Xu, Emma Bao and Aedan Honohan. With a combined score of 54, our school team was the #1 team in South Carolina and earned School Merit Roll recognition. Congratulations to all who participated! It was a challenging test and there were many great scores!
