The Shafer Academic Team is open to all students who would like to grow academically in a fun and competitive way. For our teams to achieve growth and success, students need to commit to practice and independent study. Our team practice is every Monday after school until 4:15 PM. Teams consist of 4 students each and letters indicate the ranking of individual students. Students on team A are generally the most experienced and best players. The coach has the discretion to form the teams.
As members of the Sumner County Middle School Academic League, we practice with other teams once a month at various county middle schools. Traditionally, we compete in three NAQT Tournaments and two National Computer Competitions annually.
We are very proud of the 2017 teams. Team A placed 2nd in the SCMS Tournament and our B team placed 8th.
The Shafer A team also received an invitation to the 2017 National Academic Quiz Tournament held in Dallas, TX in May.
