Sixth grader Jose Romero earned a gold medal for placing first overall in his grade level’s math competition.
Seventh grader Xitlally Alcocer earned a silver medal after placing second in her grade level’s math competition.
“We are very proud of these two students for practicing their math daily to prepare for this very difficult competition,” Principal David Downing said.
The students competed against top students representing MESA centers from USC, UCLA, UC Irvine and Cal State L.A.
