This year, we had 932 students representing 38 high schools take the local Olympiad exam. Arcadia High School finished first overall while North Hollywood High School finished first for first year students. Fifteen students representing ten schools were invited to participate in the National Exam on April 27th at California State University, Dominguez Hills for a chance to be part of the 51st International Chemistry Olympiad (ICHO), which will be held in Paris, France. 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 will have an Asian Take-out Buffet featuring Orange Chicken and Garlic Pan Fried Noodles with Vegetables and Tofu served with Mixed Vegetable Stir-fry, fried and steamed rice, and almond and fortune cookies for dessert. The cost of the dinner is $20 per person or $15 for students, cash or check at the door.
