This year, we had over 1,100 students representing 32 high schools throughout Los Angeles County take the Local ACS Exam in March. The top overall school was again Palos Verdes Penninsula, with Arcadia High School scoring the highest for the top 10 students taking their first year of chemistry now. From these students, 16 students representing 10 high schools were selected to take the National ACS Chemistry Exam on April 28th for a chance to be one of the 20 nationwide who will be attending the Chemistry Camp in June. These 16 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.
