Kyle Reese

Kyle Reese, a student at Endeavour Elementary School, is a math champion.

The fourth-grade student was one of a handful of children across the country who scored 100 percent on a nationwide test. For his perfect score on last month’s test, Kyle was awarded first place in both Washington and the nation at a May 18 ceremony in Kirkland.

“We’re starting a trophy room for him,” Kyle’s father Dennis Reese said. “He is an exceptional kid.”

Kyle and 1,512 other fourth-graders took the test, Math Kangaroo, March 15.

Each year, Math Kangaroo administers a test for students in grades one through 12. Participation in the competition is voluntary and costs $20. Next year’s test is set for March 21.
