SAN JUAN City Mayor Francis Zamora said 33 students from the San Juan City Academic Senior High School bagged awards during the Heat Round of the Thailand International Mathematical Olympiad on October 23, 2022.

“I feel happy and proud to be greeted with news that not just one, not just two, but 33 of our young San Juaneño students from our very own public school winning in another international competition, and at mathematics at that with 100 percent winning rate,” Zamora said.

“People used to doubt the quality of education our public schools provided but San Juan City is a testament that with the LGU and DepEd working hand in hand, we can produce the best students from our public schools that this country can really be proud of,” he added.

The city’s contingent in the math olympiad claimed 1 gold, 9 silver and 23 bronze medals.

These awards add to the international haul of the San Juan City Academic Senior High School led by their OIC-Principal Dr. Rina Angeles.

Six months ago, the school produced six winners from the Hong Kong International Mathematical Olympiad.

“These achievements are products of perseverance and team work by our LGU, the principals, teachers, students and parents who all joined hands in making sure our students get the best education in the country,” Dr. Cecille Carandang, Schools Division superintendent, said.

The school also said that its teacher Adrian Monilla was recognized as an Outstanding Coach by the Math Olympiad Training League for coaching winners in two consecutive international mathematical events while San Juan City was hailed as Top Performing School in the Philippines.
