In the words of Bascom Guffin, “I was happy with how our students did, as they over performed in comparison with other schools, both in terms of the number of certificate winners and in terms of the scores given for all the students in the class. The stories are evaluated by their peers in the other schools that participate, so it's especially pleasing to see how they did.”
