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.

Best Monmouth County Private School

The contest features a number sense round, target round, sprint round, and team round. For the 3rd grade participants, Oak Hill student, Andie Sparano came in 6th place. In the 4th grade, OHA had Donovan Kane in 9th place and Owen Henderson in 10th place. In the 5th grade competition, Annabel Sparano was in 7th place. Oak Hill Academy also received a team trophy. Approximately 110 students from eight schools participated in the competition.

Three Oak Hill students who attended qualified to move on to the state competition on April 24, 2019 at Kent Place School in Summit. They were Andie Sparano, Dimitrios Giannakopoulos, and Annabel Sparano. There were more participants this year than ever before and Andie earned 12th place for the 3rd grade and Annabel earned 13th place for the 6th grade.

Oak Hill’s success over the years can be attributed to the students’ hard work, as well as their challenging math curriculum at Oak Hill.
