for (var prop in students ) {
  var name = students[prop].name;

This looks pretty "clean" as it is. :+1: But you might want to display the attribute names along with their values.

And you could make it a bit more compact by not creating variables that are used only once, and iterating on the student objects directly:

for (var stud of students ) {
  var printOut = "<h1>" + stud.name + "</h1>";
  printOut += "<p>Track: " + stud.track + "</p>";
  printOut += "<p>Achievements: " + stud.achievements + "</p>";
  printOut += "<p>Points: " + stud.points + "</p>";

thank you! that's looks more sexy!
