The Academic Decathlon promotes student achievement by providing a format in which high school students compete in various academic areas. In addition to a seven-minute interview, a one-hour essay and two speeches, written comprehensive exams are given in music, art, language/literature, mathematics, economics, (social) science, and the Super Quiz.

In the Super Quiz Relay, Marshall placed 1st and Health Careers placed 2nd.

This year’s topic is “Water: A Most Essential Resource.”
