Denmark pays us a visit
Students from Denmark: paid us a visit in mid March. They spent some time in various classes, and got a chance to compare notes with their HSAS counterparts on education, health care, and politics.
This year's Moot Court Team made into the finals again: In the 2013 MENTOR city-wide Moot Court competition, the HSAS team went to the final round for the second consecutive year, but came in second in the city, bested this year by Brooklyn Tech. The photo below was taken at the Second Court of Appeals, and was judged by a panel of federal judges. A big round of congratulations to Ms. Peterson and the team!

HSAS X Country had an amazing season! This last October, all squads: the Varsity, JV, and Frosh-Soph took first place in the Boro Champs! An amazing feat for a small high school!
Congratulations to the HSAS Model UN Team for their victory at the Lab High School Model United Nations Competition last spring! Students competed in committees on topics ranging from a futuristic war to the illicit arms trade. The team took home 16 of the conference's 24 awards, including all 6 of the Best Delegate Awards. The Lab Conference was the second of the year, preceded by the Global Classrooms conference held at CCNY in February, where the team won the Secretary General's Award, and five of the six best delegate awards. We hope the team's winning streak continues, bringing them to the International Conference held in May at the United Nations.
