The large number of invitations is a record for the school which has been focused on improv- ing academic performance and student success since the 2007 arrival of the new administrative team. "The strength of our school can be seen in the success of our students. I am very proud of our Middle School students. They worked hard all year and it shows", reports Lydia Torres, Assis- tant Principal and Direc- tor of Curriculum at the school. The three Exam Schools, Boston Latin School. Boston Latin Academy, and the O'Bryant School of Math and Science accept students en- tering 7 th and 9 th Grades. Accepted to Boston Latin School are entering 9 th grad- ers Jonah Faulkner and Victoria Wu and entering 7 th graders Ethan Crain, Sophie Edelstein Rosenberg, Jas- mine Nguyen. Dani Pezzuto, Daniela Romero, Zachary Taieb. and Tajah Thomas. Accepted into Boston Latin Academy are entering 7 th graders Ciara D'Amico. Gia DiGiacomo. Timothy Martin, and Eva Scapicchio. The O'Bryant School of Math and Science has extended ac- ceptances to entering 9 th graders Gabriela Amy Moreno. Gui Ying Chen, Paris Green, Faiso Hersi. Fawsy Salama, and Zeyu Zheng as well as entering 74 grader John Pezzuto. "We are so proud of our son, Fawzy". said Hagar and Daniel. "He and his fellow students have been very fo- cused on their academics and have enjoyed their ex- / perience at the Eliot. We are grateful to the committed i ] staff of teachers and admin- istrators. They were an in- tegral part of our son's suc- cess, and we thank them for their support, and encour- agement." Entrance to an exam school in Boston is highly competitive. Students are invited based on the combi- nation of their academic per- formance and the results of the entrance exam. To be accepted, they need to be in the top percentile of all ap- plicants. Boston Public Exam Schools have long traditions of academic excellence and achievement. The value of an Exam School education is priceless, providing stu- dents with strong founda- tions that serve them well in school and beyond. "John and I are thrilled Ciara has been accepted into a Boston Latin Academy", reports Ciara D'Amico's mother, Karen. "When she started at the Eliot in Kin- dergarten, getting into an Exam School seemed very far away. The years have passed quickly and Ciara has had a wonderful experi- ence at the Eliot. We are pleased for her and so proud of her. And we appreciate everything the Eliot has done to support her along the way.
