Rossman School Teams Sweep National Geography Challenge
By: Director of Marketing and Communication Sarah Meyer
Rossman School geographers made history this spring, placing first among fourth, fifth and sixth graders in the 2020 National Geography Challenge.
In the nationwide challenge, the scores of the top 10 students are combined to determine the team score. This is the first year all three of Rossman’s teams have won their divisions, and their achievements bring the number of national titles Rossman has earned to 12. Rossman’s Class of 2020 has claimed first in the nation for three consecutive years.
The National Geography Challenge is sponsored by the National Council for Geographic Education. The written exam tests general knowledge of geography, map skills, interpreting charts and graphs, and reading comprehension.

The school’s mission is to provide a strong, well-balanced education in a nurturing school community committed to excellence.
