The SPRCS top ten students included first place student Radley Rodriguez, Ruan Azueta took second place, third place went to Kristian Bardalez and Cassian Chavaria, Maria Carrera took fourth place, Jarvin Velasquez took fifth place, sixth place went to Angelique Castellanos and Oscar Gamez, Bryan Monje took seventh place, Jose Beteta came in eighth, Rochelle Acosta took ninth place and Charles Saki placed tenth.
