A group of Pierce Middle School students were honored with a luncheon last week where they were recognized for earning a “280” -- a perfect score -- on at least one Massachusetts Comprehensive Assessment System test.
Pierce Middle School saw an increase of 21 students who attained a perfect score this year compared with last year.
One student, James Eder, received perfect scores in all three subject areas -- math, English/language arts, and science.
“This is an extraordinary accomplishment,” principal James Jette said about Eder in a statement. “It shows the level of effort, concentration, and mastery of the subject matter that Jamie put forth.”
Nearly 300 students at Pierce obtained a growth percentile of 80 percent or higher, meaning that they improved their scores by a significant margin. Those students will be recognized later this year.
“These scores don’t just happen,” said Superintendent Mary Gormley at the luncheon. “They reflect an enormous amount of hard work by you, your teachers, your parents and guardians, and the entire staff of the Milton public schools. You should be very proud.”
The following Pierce students received a perfect score on the MCAS: William LeClerc (280 in two subjects), Isaac Robinson (280 in two subjects), Shane Berry, Victoria Chen, Serena Chen, James Conley, Abigail Lang, Robert Dexter, Kelly Hines, Joshua Kackley, Edward Taugher, Mark Walsh, Jordan Bacci, Megan Bernardi, Genevieve Connelly, Heidi Freking, Timothy Karoff, Griffin McLaughlin, Hueninh Nguyen, Jeremie Carpenter, Eva Chow, Xavier Fischer, Paul Ruscito, Caroline McGillvray, Benjamin Scott, Julia Biagiotti, Edward Callahan, Michael Eberhardt, Delphine Jrolf, Elena Milwood, Aislinn O’Brien, Maggie O’Hanlon, Julianna Viola, Selin Yalcindag, and Sampson Yuan, Simon Eder (280 in two subjects), Joshua Kery (280 in two subjects), Emily Chow, Mary Corcoran, Emily Dsida, Danielle Dumais, Shannon Fitzgerald, Liam Halloran, Liam Hines, Hope Huban, John Lenane, Meaghan McDougall, Sarah Monderer, Michaela Olson, Daniel Stockbridge, and Kalyani Twyman.
