Middle School Hosts Children's History Challenge
Posted 04/19/2018 09:06AM

On Friday, April 13th, 15 Gerstell Academy middle school students competed in the annual Children's History Challenge. The entire program was developed by Mr. Stephen Olszewski, Chairman of the History Department. Three teams, consisting of five students each answered a variety of questions designed to challenge students to learn from those children who lived very different though out history. For example, the students learned about Kory Johnson from Arizona who became an environmentalist after her sister died from drinking contaminated tap water.

The students studied after school, in the evenings, and on weekends in order to prepare for the competition.

"Gerstell Academy is the only leadership school in the area, and our children have benefited greatly by its values-based curriculum."

Leadership permeates all aspects of the curriculum. Students are encouraged to demonstrate their leadership in school, at home, and in the community.

"The admissions process at Gerstell Academy was a wonderfully welcoming experience. From the moment we entered the Robert E. Smith Hall, we knew that Gerstell was where we wanted our child to be."

"The challenging academics at Gerstell Academy taught our daughter to think critically and to be prepared to compete in an increasingly global society. We loved the Spanish fluency requirement."

Physical training encompasses both daily physical education opportunities and competitive athletics.
