New National Academic League at GWHS

“The National Academic League © motivates and recognizes academic athletes much like their athletic peers. By successfully combining the important aspects of team sports — such as competitiveness, strategy, teamwork and cooperation in a group effort — with important aspects of learning — such as problem solving, critical thinking and scholarship — the NAL © generates the same popular enthusiasm and pride as do sports teams. It’s cool to be smart!”

It's cool to be smart!

 Under their coach, Mrs. Andrea Seitchik, the First GWHS NAL Team competed this school year. The team is comprised of students in grades 9-12. Games were played against Northeast High School, Douglas High School and Martin Luther King High School. Each team competed against each other twice. Our final standings in the Gold Region was 5-1. We continued on to the City-Wide finals reaching 4thplace. Quite an accomplishment for a 1st year team.
