Alpha Junior tops CPEA performance list

Two pupils of the same school attained the highest scores as Alpha Junior returned to power its way to the top of the CPEA performance list.

As the scores and statistics of 2017, Caribbean Primary Exit Assessment came to light the Mt. Parnassus based institution erupted in jubilation as Michael Sylvester and Amara Sade Francis occupied the two top places. Michael completed his feat with a score of 491 points from a maximum of 500.

Young Michael said his initial reaction was shocked disbelief, as he couldn’t believe that he had secured the first position. When he got over the shock, happiness replaced it. 

His equally pleased mother said his target was a place in the first five but number one is all the better.

Amara cried for joy a bit when she got the results but is also very happy with her performance. She said while the exam was not as difficult as she had thought it was going to be, it wasn’t so easy either.

Principal Stephanie John said she is proud, excited and ecstatic to experience such pleasing results. 

She said it’s been a long time coming and while the school has consistently performed well over the years, this year saw an outstanding performance by the students

Two other students of the St. George’s Anglican Senior School joined Amara in second place.

Zane La Rose and Kizron Thomas put the Church Street School in the top echelon through dedicated studies and the will to excel.

Of the 1917 student who registered for the assessment throughout the tri-island, 1724 students have been assigned to secondary institutions. This 189 represents a reduction in the number of students retained this year compared to last year when 232 failed to succeed to the next level.

The national mean was 69.46 and the standard deviation 14.64. This reflects an increase of 3.26 when compared to 2016’s and 2015’s 66.2 and 66.23, respectively
