Fab Five

There is a group of rock star students at Morris K. Udall Middle School who are known by their teachers and administrators as the “Fab Five.” These five 8th grade students earned this nickname by becoming outstanding scholars in math at MKU and at the local High School.

“At MKU I feel supported by my administration and by them allowing me to take high school geometry, I feel mentally challenged everyday.” -Fab Five Student

Last school year while in 7th grade all five students excelled in advanced algebra and passed the very rigorous Phoenix Union High School District’s Algebra Qualifying Test. Now, as 8th grade students at MKU they are bussed to Carl Hayden High School every morning to attend the honors geometry class.

They attend the geometry class with freshman and sophomores. The Fab Five students continue to be in the top ten percent for test scores and grades, while competing with high school students.

When they start high school next school year they will have earned high school freshman class credits in both algebra and geometry.
