Academic Bowl

At NMSD, we believe in encouraging students’ academic development outside of the classroom. NMSD sponsors an Academic Bowl Team for high school students, which competes with other schools/programs for the deaf across the nation. We are affiliated with Gallaudet University's annual Academic Bowl competition, which provides students with the opportunity to showcase their academic knowledge and skills, while competing against students from other schools/programs for the deaf at regional tournaments. Winning regional teams may also qualify to compete in the national competition held annually at Gallaudet University’s campus in Washington D.C.

NMSD students meet frequently to practice with staff and review information for academic bowl competitions.
