Recently, the Northport-East Northport School District was informed that five students have been accepted into the Institute of Creative Problem Solving for Gifted and Talented Students.  Northport Middle School eighth-grade student Braden Ciszek, Northport High School freshmen James Connor, Tara D’Amico, and McKenzie Schuvart, and East Northport Middle School sixth-grader Luke Tuthill are five of the 90 students who received this honor. Six hundred students across Long Island were nominated, but being selected for the program places these students in the top one percent of math students Island-wide.

These five students will spend 50 hours over 20 Saturday mornings studying an extensive mathematics curriculum.  This tuition-free institute is supported by SUNY College at Old Westbury, the Suffolk and Nassau County Mathematics Teachers Associations, the Nassau Interscholastic Mathematics League, and others.

The district is extremely proud of these students, and commends them for their academic excellence and hard work that qualified them for this honor.
