8th grade Social Studies students from Parkwood Middle School have placed among the top schools in the nation for the fourth year in a row. The students recently competed in the National Social Studies League competition. Taking the exam along with schools from 15 other states, the students competed against their peers on a wide range of American History topics. The National Social Studies League exams are administered once a year to students from grades 2 through 12. The test measures students’ knowledge of American history from the colonial to the modern era.
