MACC

The Mountain Academic Competition Conference (or MACC) is an academic competition consisting of matches formatted much like team Jeopardy. Each match consists of a round for each of the five different teams (English, Math, Science, All-Around, and History) and tests the skills of the teams on each subject. Matches in a season are generally played until every school has a chance to compete against all others, at which point they will all face off in a tournament. GWHS boasts the best English team in the conference for four years running. If you are looking for a challenge, then joining one of the MACC teams is certainly a place to start. See Mr. Shelton if you are considering joining the English team. Mr. Copenhaver is the head of the science team. Mrs. Ferguson pulls double duty as the social studies and all-around coach. Mrs. Davidson rounds out the team as the math coach.
