Middle School Quiz Bowl at Nationals 2023

“Quiz bowl stretches your brain to contain more knowledge than ever before. It is a great club that anyone of any age should join.” These are the words of 7th grade player Gavin who was on the team last year for the first time. Players meet weekly for practices during the main season starting in October and going through March. The big misconception is that people think you need to be smart in all subjects to join, this is, however, not the case. Players work on teams of four with each player having one strong subject area. The main subjects involved in tournaments are History, Science, Literature/Arts, and Geography.  Our players did so well in the first two seasons of the program that school was able to send teams to Nationals both years. Each year the team grows and develops. If you want to know a thing or two about anything and everything, you should check out Quiz Bowl!

Students of the Month for grade 9-12

For each month from September through April, teachers are asked to nominate students as candidates for Students of the Month. Teachers are asked to base these nominations on the character and academic excellence displayed by students in the classroom and around school. Once nominations are submitted the NHS members vote anonymously for two students they believe best represent these traits. Winners are then recognized by receiving a certificate, a locker sign, announcement in school and on all mediums of advertisement the school produces, as well as a note home to parents.

National Junior Honor Society

Spectrum's National Junior Honor Society is a 7-9th grade organization dedicated toward positively impacting the lives of those around us, especially those of our school and community. NJHS meets 1-2 times per month throughout the year, coming up with and implementing ideas about how to help others. The NJHS members come up with much of the ideas and plans themselves that relate to the five pillars of NJHS: scholarship, service, leadership, character and citizenship. NJHS is a great opportunity to show and develop your leadership and collaboration skills while also making an impact on the Spectrum and broader community.


If you have any questions regarding NJHS at Spectrum, please feel free to contact Mr. Johnson.

Spectrum Theatre Program

Under the tutelage of Director Ms. Tyler and Assistant Director Mr. De Haan, students will explore and encounter the magic of the theater. At Spectrum, students have the opportunity to participate in two different theater experiences. In the fall, the cast prepares and performs a full-length play. In the spring, the element of music is added as they prepare and perform a musical. This experience not only provides students with a unique experience to hone their theatrical skills and work on future skills like grace under pressure and working as a group, but it also provides an opportunity for students not in an athletic extracurricular to develop a strong, close-knit community. With practices that go late during the week and Saturday rehearsals, cast meals are common and students have the chance to share a meal in fellowship with one another. Come check out our awesome theater program and catch one of our shows!

For more informtion on Spectrum's Theatre program, contact Ms. Kathy Tyler.
