A group of Danville students can now say they're smarter than most other teens in the world.
That's because they scored higher than the world average on their international exams.
All 21 are part of the International Baccalaureate program here at Galileo Magnet High School.
The I-B program is designed for advanced students throughout the world and tests them on core subjects like history and math and two foreign languages.
Administrators were ecstatic when they received the test scores.
"Extremely proud. I'm a new principal here, so I've been here for just two weeks, but it just goes to show the level of students and teachers we have here at Galileo," said Principal Jay Lancaster.
Galileo is one of four high schools in southern and southwest Virginia that offers the program.
This is the first time the school has scored higher than the world average in more than one subject.
Administration hope to repeat their success next year, more than 40 students are already enrolled for the upcoming semester.
