There's Always Something Great Happening at VNHS!
VNHS ACADEMIC DECATHLON TEAM
Van Nuys High School's Academic Decathlon team placed 2nd in LAUSD Regional Competition, and 1st in Division 1!
The theme of this year’s decathlon is “The Cold War,” with students spending countless hours of intense study preparing for multiple-choice tests in art, economics, math, music, science and social science, as well as prepared and impromptu speeches, an interview and an essay. Due to the current health crisis, the academic tests were administered online, while the speeches and interviews were virtual.
Congratulations to Coach Jono Mitchell and the entire team. VNHS members each earned a medal for Team Gold in Division 1. Additionally, several members placed in one or more categories, earning a total of 23 individual medals. The team is now preparing for the state competition in March.
