Academic Team

Students must meet eligibility requirements to join the team. These requirements will be checked in the first few weeks of school. If your child is eligible, we will contact you via email.

What Is the Academic Team?

The academic team competes in quiz-based competitions that tests players on a wide variety of academic subjects. The game is typically played with a lockout buzzer system between two teams, usually consisting of four players each team. A moderator reads questions to the players who try to score points for their team by buzzing first and responding with the correct answer.

Why Should You Join?

Hey you……. Yes, you…… listen carefully…..did you join the Academic Team at Bruner Middle School?  If not, you should.  Why should you join the Academic team?  Because this is an excellent opportunity for you to show your academic skills and knowledge. Members of the Academic team serve as examples of intellectual, musical, and artistic achievement. Meet and make friends with members of Bruner Middle and other schools across the county! There are 6 competitions every year.  Oh wait….. I have more good and exciting news……. Join in the fun and participate in local activities like pizza parties, classroom jeopardy, and so much more.
