In 2018, more than 30%, at least 17 of SpringLight's students qualified for the USABO semifinal.

In 2017, around 30% of our students qualified for the USABO semifinal. 2 students qualified for the final and get into USABO camp.

Starting 2014, every year we have had at least one student qualify for the Final (each year there are only a total of 20 finalists nationally). 

Every year we have 9th graders qualifying for the USABO semifinal.

Most of our students receive a score of 5 on their AP biology test.

Many of them score an 800 on the SAT II Biology.
