Academic Team

Academic Team Coach             Mrs. Cindy Bailey

The Altus High School Academic Team competes in quiz bowl competitions by answering questions dealing with all topics of human knowledge, including: math science, social studies, literature, fine arts, sports and general trivia.  Academic team members benefit from studying a broad range of academic subjects, increasing memorization and study skills, and learning to work in teams in cooperative and competitive arenas.  A quiz bowl competition is typically played with a lockout buzzer system between two teams of four players each.  A moderator reads questions to the teams, whose players try to be the first to buzz in with a correct answer.   The team with the most points at the end of the game wins.
