Claire Chen, University of Toronto Schools

Claire graduated from Denlow Public School's gifted program in 2008. After achieving an overall percentile of 99 on her SSATs, Claire was accepted by UTS as one of the top ten girls, eventually finishing grade seven with the third highest average in her grade. The following year, her academic average increased to second out of all the other students in grade eight.

This year, Claire left UTS for Northern Secondary to better pursue her interest in Business, but she will always consider UTS her home.

Despite maintaining high marks, Claire is an active member of the debate association, placed at the provincial level in DECA and French Public Speaking Contests, and is her Class Representative for the Student Council.
