Indian Mountain School students have been eager to put their math skills to the test in a variety of organized math competitions.
On November 15, 2017, a group of 37 of our seventh and eighth graders took the AMC 8 test, which is a 25-question, 40-minute, multiple choice examination in middle school mathematics designed to promote the development of problem-solving skills. AMC stands for the American Mathematics Competitions from the Mathematical Association of America (MAA).

#3 – Sinclair Shen. IMS third place. Honor Roll Certificate – scored in top 5% nationally
