Each year, Eton School recognizes outstanding student achievement in
community competitions. These competitions include a variety of
subjects such as Science, Math, Writing and Latin. Celebrating their
accomplishments is part of belonging to the Eton School community.
Although the Montessori philosophy does not encourage competition at
the young ages, students gain proficiency and confidence at different
times and in different areas. We are pleased that Eton students have
voluntarily participated in individual and group activities and
succeeded at high performance levels.
Congratulations to Eton students for outstanding results
in community competitions!

Junior Classical League Convention/National Mythology Exams|
Eton School participated in the Junior Classical League Convention in the spring at the Fort Warden Conference Center in Port Townsend, Washington and had a superlative experience. Fifth through eighth grade students competed against other public and independent middle and high school students from the Washington State/British Columbia Chapter. Eton's students were awarded thirty-one 1st places, twenty-nine 2nd places and twenty-two third places in the areas of academic, graphic and performing arts, sports, costume and Latin oratory. Eton School won 1st place in the Skit Competition and third in the Spirit Contest.
Eton students took the challenging National Latin Exam, joining Latin students from 50 states and several countries. Two students earned Silver Maxima Cum Laude awards and another a Cum Laude certificate.
Students also earned exceptional scores on the National Mythology Exam, an exam taken by 10,000 students from around the world. Four students scoring 100% earned Gold Medallions; three students were awarded Silver Medallions (scores in 99-95% ranges); and nine were awarded Bronze (94%-90%). The Latin program at Eton School is definitely alive and well!
