Brian Schweigler of La Isla Bonita Elementary School is the island’s best PSE scorer, with 364 points out of a possible 400. The Primary School Examination (PSE) is a two-part exam given to students to assess their achievement of curriculum content and skills in the areas of English, Mathematics, Social Studies and Science of the National Primary School Curriculum. In a release by the Ministry of Education, it states that “the examination seeks not to rank students in comparison to other students, but to report what each student has achieved for individual skills.”

Below find a list of the top ten scorers on the island. Kudos to the students for their hard work, and also to the teachers, parents and all those who assisted them in their quest for academic excellence.
