Dear parents, teachers, students and staff,
We hope everyone had a good rest after a very successful Christmas Bazaar! Thank you very much for all of your hard work, support and participation. We didn’t know what to expect with the new layout but because of our wonderful Saint Maur community, it exceeded our expectations. We will be sharing the results once everything has been properly accounted for so stay tuned! In the meantime, we thank you again and again!

It was an opportunity to develop team work, fair play, and a taste for reaching and overcoming one's own limits. The day usually takes place on a Japanese holiday to allow families and friends to come and cheer... Read More

Seeing people at the same age as me who are also equally interested in science as I am, working diligently in their labs and writing up reports sparked a... Read More

Apprehensions were almost as unusually high as the 29-degree temperatures of the sparkling October day on the Saint Maur team, as the day of the annual Brain Bowl competition dawned.
It was quite an unusual Brain Bowl overall, in many other aspects: It was at CAJ, this year, not Yokota (as had been last year), and last year’s 300-point whirlwind captain (Yuki Kawamura) had graduated last June, leaving us with considerable uncertainty in this year’s competition. Of course there was Eugene, the... Read More
