On Saturday, February 6, Ponderosa High School took first place as a team during this year’s Academic Decathlon, held at Oak Ridge High School. The Academic Decathlon provides academic competitions that promote learning and academic excellence through teamwork. The program includes students of all academic abilities and achievement levels. Students are tested in the areas of art, economics, essay, interview, literature, math, music, science and speech, and it’s capped off with a Super Quiz — the highlight of the decathlon, where the public is invited to attend.
