Kirby Hall School did it again. The elementary and middle schools both took first place in a statewide academic competition, dominating the 102 other schools.
Congratulations to the Kirby Hall middle school math club for placing 13th in the world, 6th in Texas and 3rd in Texas at the 2015 Purple Comet Math Meet. The team consisting of Benjamin Burton, Joseph Carruth, Nir Elb, Alexander Burton, Vaughan McInerney, and Sam Shvets competed in the small middle school division (which includes all middle schools with at most 400 students) of the contest.
Former Kirby Hall student Sonali Mitra is working for the Gold Award, the highest achievement in Girl Scouts. This prestigious award challenges high school girls “to change the world – or at least your corner of it,” according to the Girl Scouts organization.
