Too bad they didn't say top ten because my son Tom is in that group. A kid with learning disabilities that fought valiantly to over come them and become a top student. Straight A's all 4 years in accelerated subjects too. So proud of him!

And as usual - only "signed' athlete students get to tell the world were they will be going to school or where they got in. Gee - top 10 of a 554 and no kudos for them no mention in the paper. Give these student-student the praise they deserve. Let them boast that they applied and were accepted to top schools. I know, because of money many will not go to some of their top choices, but as they grow older - they will always remember that I got into...

mini, the information I posted was all that was provided by the school district. (not sure what you mean about signed athletes announcing where they're going, because that's not in the article) But if you'd like to announce your child's accomplishments and where they're attending college, feel free to do so here: http://newtown-pa.patch.com/articles/patch-101-posting-announcements-is-easy-e1e20464
