Next week at Swampscott High School is Midterm Exams. Students only come to SHS for their specific exams. Therefore, they have ample time to study, prepare, and practice mindfulness.
Please also note that our Open House for Prospective New Students is happening on January 18, 2017. This evening is for all students currently in grade 8 at SMS or any private schools that are attending SHS next year or considering attending.
We had 55 students participate in the District event. Of the 55 students, 23 qualified for the State competition and 7 of those 23 came in first place in their categories. We also had 10 students place 5th which puts them in a position to be bumped up into the State competition if anybody in the top 4 is unable to attend. As a comparison, we had 8 students qualify for States last year out of 42, so we had significantly improved results at this year's competition!
