Darien High School earned a charter to open a chapter of Mu Alpha Theta Mathematics National Honor Society this school year. The goal of Mu Alpha Theta is to recognize high achieving mathematics students and to share the beauty and joy of mathematics with others in the community. In order to be eligible for induction students must maintain an A- GPA in mathematics, have completed or are enrolled in a 400 level mathematics course, and participate in at least one math-related activity outside of standard coursework. On Wednesday May 24th, the DHS chapter of Mu Alpha Theta inducted its first 46 members.
The induction was led by President Mila Escajadillo and Vice President Andrew Benz. Following induction, students were recognized for achievement in Moody’s Mega Math Challenge, Math Majors of America Tournament for High Schools, and the American Mathematics Competition (AMC).
Darien High School was recognized by the largest professional mathematics organization, the Mathematics Association of America, with a Certificate of Merit for the achievement of our top students on the AMC. We are so proud of all our mathematically curious students! And thank you as well to your tireless Math Faculty Member Matt Buchta who is your loudest cheerleader.
