Brainiacs At K-V-H-S Continue To Excel In National Competition

What constitutes the success of Kennebecasis Valley High at Reach for the Top?

K-V-H-S went undefeated in winning its second consecutive national championship, a feat only accomplished once before in 45 years.

Team coach Jason Thorne tells CHSJ News you need more than just being bright to do well in this sort of competition because if you're not quick on your feet and can answer the questions quickly, it doesn't matter how knowledgeable a student might be.

Thorne goes on to say at K-V-H-S, younger students are groomed by first competing in the junior division and then moving up the ranks.

All of the winning team members this year are in grade 12 and will have to be replaced by a new crop of students.
