The 2011 Intel Science Semifinalists have been announced, and 18 students from Westchester County qualified. Of the 18, eight were from Ossining High school. This ties Ossining with the renowned Bronx High School for Science as the school with the most qualified students. In all, only 300 students nationwide are chosen as semifinalists, and a mere 40 go on to be finalists.
A few years ago, Ossining sent 4 seniors to Harvard, an number that astounded people across Westchester.
Local semifinalists also hailed from Yorktown, White Plains, Mamaroneck, Scarsdale, Byram Hills, Edgemont, Horace Greeley and Riverdale Country school.
A hearty congratulations to all, and a big hat tip to the students and faculty at Ossining High School. You should be proud of your accomplishment!
