For the fifth consecutive year, Windsor Park Elementary School been recognized as top in the nation in the National Continental Math League Computer Science competition.
Additionally, four students were recognized as National Student Leaders for scoring perfect 18/18 individual scores. They include third graders Aiden Kim and Ishaan Debchoudhury, fourth grader Katherine Xu and fifth grader Berea Klaus.
Technology applications teacher and computer science team advisor Gary Henicke said while it is the fifth year the school has had at least one team place first, Windsor Park has won nationally 13 times since 2015, the year the contest started. He said the school has three computer science academic teams for third, fourth and fifth grade.
“It is an academic team that students try out for to qualify,” Henicke said. “It is not a ‘computer club.’ Students compete here at school and our assistant principal Catarino Rodriguez submits our scores.”
