For the past two years, Farmingdale students have progressed to the finals at both the middle school and the high school levels, and went on to compete at the national level. Middle School math teacher Virginia Dalton said, “We have been honored to have these elite mathematicians represent our district!”

The highest scoring students across the nation will be invited to the paper and pencil final competition—to be held April 27, 2019 in Chicago.
