Students Win National Awards for Cambridge Assessment Tests

The School District of Lee County is proud to announce that two students have won national awards for their performance on the June 2021 Cambridge Advanced International Certificate of Education (AICE) Assessments.

Estero High School student Hayden Germanis earned a “Top in Country” award for Digital Media and Design. “Top in Country” awards are presented to students who earn the highest standard mark in the nation in an individual subject.

Mathew Powell from Lehigh Senior High School is a “Best Across Four” award winner for attaining the highest cumulative total standard marks in the country in four AS level assessments.

‘It is extremely rewarding to congratulate Cambridge learners and teachers at Estero and Lehigh Senior High Schools who have worked so hard to achieve tremendous success in Cambridge examinations” says Chief Academic Officer Dr. Jeff Spiro. “The results reflect the enormous talent in our high schools, not only amongst learners but also within the teaching profession. Both Hayden and Mathew have a bright future ahead of them, and I wish them every success in their future.”

In additional to the two national awards, 229 students received Cambridge Awards for their exceptional performance on the June 2021 exam series.

  • Estero High School – 96 students
  • North Fort Myers High School – 78 students
  • Lehigh Senior High School – 53 students
  • East Lee County High School – 2 students

Students in the Cambridge program take AICE classes to prepare for the exams to earn college credit and a potential Cambridge diploma. The Cambridge AICE diploma is awarded to students who have passed seven Cambridge exams in three different subject groups as well as a Global Perspectives and Research exam. The exams are rigorous college-level tests taken twice a year by 175,000 students worldwide.
