AIME American Invitational Math Exam:
Only 5% of students across the country are invited to take the American Invitational Mathematics Exam (AIME) – and Immaculate High School is proud to have two of them. Juniors Yipeng (Simon) Zhao of Sandy Hook and Junyi (Luka) Lu of Danbury qualified for the AIME by scoring high on the national AMC 12 exam recently. Zhao’s score was high enough to earn him a Certificate of Distinction. The two will take the fifteen question, three-hour AIME on February 7, 2023. Join us in wishing them the best of luck. Congratulations to all IHS students who received a participation certificate for taking the AMC exams.
