Serious Academic Group

This weekend Glendale's Academic Decathlon Team competed in a regional tournament of 27 teams. 

  • Team Captain Taylor Parker (junior) earned first place in the honors category for the speech event and second overall among all competitors. 
  • Leebari Vizor earned first place in the scholastic category for the interview event and first place overall among all competitors!!! 
  • Both of these first place finishes were the only by any student in our district and the first ever in Glendale history. Additionally, Leebari's first place overall is the school's first ever and only this year by any student in our district.  
  • Glendale finished 18th overall, second among our district schools. Our region is all Glendale Union and Phoenix Union schools, along with charter and private schools in the area. The team did not qualify to move onto state competition, as only the top 10 in the region advance.
