School Accomplishments and Awards


SCHOOL ACCOMPLISHMENTS: The Schilling School has the highest average SAT score among Greater Cincinnati public and private high schools (Cincinnati Magazine - April 2003). The Ohio Department of Education and the Canadian Department of Education requested permission to use the Schilling curriculum as a model. Special television reports focusing on gifted children have featured The Schilling School. STUDENT ACCOMPLISHMENTS: Two Schilling students have received perfect scores in the National Latin Exam. A board game patent was awarded to a Schilling Lower School student, possibly the youngest patent holder in American history. Four Schilling writers from grades 2, 8 and 9 have been published. Upper level science students from Schilling attended the American Association for the Advancement of Science Conference in Washington, DC, and spent time with Stephen J. Gould, whose books had been studied in class and with whom they had corresponded. In 2014, two Schilling students competed at the national level for the National History Bee competition. FACULTY ACCOMPLISHMENTS: Our Math/Science Department chair, who teaches Calculus, Differential Equations, Advanced Physical Mathematics, and Differential Phenomena, was nominated for a Nobel Prize. This brought him international acclaim, with his work featured in scientific books and international journals, including cover articles in Science and Naturwissenschaften. He has more than 50 scientific publications to his credit and is internationally regarded as an expert in Auger spectroscopy. Our Molecular Biology teacher, a researcher at the University of Cincinnati Medical School, has taught medical students and undergraduates and finds teaching gifted children at the Schilling School more stimulating intellectually. Our oil painting teacher's painting of Emperor Tsar Alexander II Nikolaevich, Tsar of Russia, and Abraham Lincoln, sixteenth president of the United States, became a part of the permanent collection of the Tsarlcoye Selo Museum, Saint Petersburg, Russia in January of 2008.
