Horizon Prep recently announced its finalists for the ACSI (Association of Christian Schools International) Math Olympics.  Students will now represent Horizon Prep at the District level competition on April 12.  Students in 3rd through 8th grade are eligible to compete.

Horizon Prep 6th Grader Alex Partida holds the new record for reciting Pi (the old record was 70 digits). He marked “Pi Day” by reciting Pi to 120 digits.

Horizon Prep also celebrated March 14 (3.14) as “Pi Day.”  Middle School students who recited at least five digits of the ratio of a circle’s circumference to its diameter were rewarded with a slice of pie.  One student, 6th grader Alex Partida, quickly accepted the challenge and became the “Pi Champ of Horizon Prep,” by reciting Pi to 120 digits!
