MBMS Scholar Quiz

A time-honored & favorite MBMS tradition, Scholar Quiz is a fun, fast-paced event that pits two teams of four students each against one another as they vie to answer questions on a variety of subjects ranging from MBMS curriculum to pop trivia.   Each day’s winning teams advance until there are only two teams left to compete in the exciting Final Round.

Who: Scholar Quiz is open to all MBMS students, who voluntarily group themselves into teams of 4.  Teams can mix and match students of any grade and gender, but students may only participate on one team per year.  Students are directed to register at school in April.

When: Scholar Quiz takes place over the course of 7 days at lunchtime in late May.  

Where: Over 50 MBMS classrooms across campus.

Parent Volunteers: Over 200 parent volunteers are essential to making Scholar Quiz run smoothly.  To ensure consistency and efficiency, volunteers are asked to attend one mandatory training each year.  Online parent registration occurs in April.
