Top Math Students Island-Wide Four From Northport

The Northport-East Northport School District was recently informed that four students have been accepted into the Institute of Creative Problem Solving (ICPS) for Gifted and Talented Students. Northport Middle School students Ty D’Amico and James Posillico, and Northport High School students Isabella Vozza and Camden Burkare are four of the 87 students who received this honor. Six hundred students across Long Island were nominated for the program, and those selected are in the top one percent of skilled math students Island-wide.

Those selected will spend 50 hours over 20 Saturday mornings studying an extensive mathematics curriculum. The institute’s mission is to grow problem-solving skills in students using intense mathematics and creative thinking.

Additionally, Danielle Levanti, a NHS student who previously completed ICPS, was accepted into program’s Math Research and Technology class. This research program allows graduates of ICPS to hone skills of writing mathematical papers and how to deliver presentations on their work — skills necessary for future success in the world of mathematics.

This tuition-free institute is supported by SUNY College at Old Westbury, the Suffolk and Nassau County Mathematics Teachers Associations, the Nassau Interscholastic Mathematics League and others.
