LACC Ranked First Nationwide!

Mariam, Math | Originally Published: 4/18/2019

Out of 170 community colleges participating from the United States, LACC is number 1 for the sixth time!

On March 1st, the second round of the AMATYC competition took place. LACC already had the individual scores for the students who took part in the competition before the Spring Break. However, it took a while till the college team rankings came out. The sum of the top five scores forms a college’s team score for the competition. This year, 170 colleges competed with their total team scores, and guess what? Earlier this week, the team rankings came out and Los Angeles City College is number one again! We are number one in the NATION!
