Description:
Teams pursue academic excellence through weekly practice and frequent competition. Teams of four or five, each student equipped with a buzzer, receive verbal questions from a reader. Teams and individuals measure success through speed, accuracy, and cooperation. We attend about ten to twelve academic tournaments each year, culminating in the state finals each March.
