Cambridge Assessment International Education, part of the University of Cambridge, has awarded three prestigious awards to PWCS students for their outstanding performance on the June 2022 examinations.
Brentsville District High School graduate Mackenna Caruso received the Cambridge Scholar Award with Merit and Brentsville District High graduate Grant Vizaniaris and current Potomac High School senior Nabiha Chowdhury received the Cambridge Scholar Award.
These awards recognize the talent, dedication, and commitment of both students and staff.
Students in the Cambridge Programme participate in an innovative international pre-university curriculum and examination system that can be tailored to their interests. Courses are based on an investigative approach to learning with students using initiative and creativity in problem solving.
The external assessments include written examinations, project work, and individual research. Students taking advanced level courses can qualify for an Advanced International Certificate of Education (AICE) diploma.
Mark Cavone, Cambridge International regional director, North America, said, “It is a great pleasure to honor students and teachers at Prince William County Public Schools (PWCS) for their exceptional work in Cambridge courses and examinations. These results are a testament to the impressive talent of students and teachers in PWCS, and it is a delight to celebrate their success. Students from PWCS should be very proud of their hard work this year. I speak for all of us at Cambridge International as I wish them every success in the coming year.”
