Like so many other people, I too was dismayed at the lack of publicity given to the 25th anniversary of Apollo II's landing on the moon. I was even more surprised at the lack of attention given to the students who were so involved with all the "space" festivities that week. The Times did not even realize that my school, Whitney High School of Cerritos, took first place in the National Space Design competition. Fifteen students worked for months to complete a design for a proposed 15,000-person orbiting space colony.

When asked, Whitney High School students readily acknowledge that they are the district nerds, preferring calculus and chemistry to ceramics and shop courses. But that's all right, say students of this honors-oriented high school. Their nose-to-the-grindstone approach has earned them the ranking of No. 1 academic public school in the state this year.
