SPRINGFIELD, Mass. (WWLP) - Springfield's SABIS International Charter School showed its school pride Wednesday.

Nine students came away with honors during the prestigious Princeton University Model Congress in the nation's capital.

SABIS student Jada Ficarra was elected model congress president. The SABIS team is rightfully proud of their accomplishments.

"There were about 700 to 800 kids in the room, all from very prestigious schools in New York and around the country," said Bridget Bushey. "And just to be from SABIS, our little school, the nine of us, it's absolutely amazing."

"Being able to see us all compete with large schools with $50,000 tuition with our public charter school able to compete really shows me we know what we're doing," Michael Scoville said. 

The nine-member SABIS model congress team excelled with a third-place finish behind two prominent private schools.
