This year, we had 1241 students representing 37 high schools throughout Los Angeles County take the Local ACS Exam in March. The top overall school for both first and second year students was Arcadia High School. From these students, 15 students representing 11 high schools were selected to take the National ACS Chemistry Exam on April 25th for a chance to be one of the 20 nationwide who will be attending the Chemistry Camp in June. These students, as well as the top performers and teachers from each school of 10 or more participants, will be honored at our annual Educational Awards Banquet.

Reservations: We have an Enchilada Buffet featuring chicken and cheese enchiladas with all the fixings. The cost of the dinner is $20 per person or $15 for students, cash or check at the door.
