At district’s most recent Board of Education meeting on Nov. 28, an outstanding student of merit was recognized as the Math Student of the Month.

Nathaniel Wang, a senior at NHS, came to the district from the Long Island School for the Gifted as a sophomore. He has shown incredible aptitude in the areas of math, science, and technology — and by the time he graduates, will have completed thirteen AP courses, receiving the best possible score on eight of the 10 tests he has taken. Chairperson of Mathematics Mrs. Robin Rann presented Nathaniel to the board, speaking highly of him.

“Not only does Nathaniel have a knack for being able to absorb and synthesize new information quickly,” said Mrs. Rann, “but he is a relentless learner who relishes a challenge and only feels fulfilled if he is in a constant state of exploration.”

Along with impressive test results and an overall weighted GPA of over 104, Nathaniel has conducted in-depth research at Cold Spring Harbor and Brookhaven Laboratories, teaches elementary students how to program through Programming Pals, is an active member of the Mathletes, and more, making him the well-deserved recipient of Northport’s Math Student of the Month award. Congratulations, Nathaniel!
