Each year, the Arizona Association of Teachers of Mathematics (AATM) sponsors a statewide algebra math competition. Summit algebra students distinguished themselves for the third year in a row, with six students scoring in the top 10 percent in the state. Of the six, one Summit student, Mark Rakowski, tied for the third highest score in the state. Classmate Dillon Shipley tied for the state’s fourth place honor.
Summit students also earned top math honors in 2012 and 2011. Last year, 12 of Christy Menard’s seventh-grade algebra students scored in the top 10 percent in the state. In 2011, four Summit seventh-graders scored in the top 10 percent statewide, with two students placing in the state’s top 10 highest scores.
