Posted 12/08/2017 11:07AM
Congratulations to our Advanced Data Analysis class, led by Mrs. Claudia Smith and Mr. Jim Oliphant. We are excited to announce that our students were selected as the “Best Overall High School” winners in the American Statistical Association Contest. (@thisisstats)

More than 70 incredible teams submitted their thoughtful analyses, using crime data sets from real police departments in Baltimore, Seattle, and Cincinnati.
Just like the real statisticians working with today’s police departments, these teams leveraged joint problem-solving skills to analyze the data sets from real police departments in Baltimore, Cincinnati, and Seattle and proposed solutions that will make these communities safer.

As the Best Overall High School winners, they will have an opportunity to share their recommendations with the Seattle police department! Additionally, each team member will receive a $50 Amazon gift card and commemorative T-Shirt.
