Congratulations to our BHS Quiz Show team, and the entire Belmont High School community on being one of 16 teams that has earned a place to compete on High School Quiz Show Season 10! These schools received the highest scores on an oral quiz at the Super Sunday qualifying event held earlier this month at WGBH’s studios and will move on to the next phase of the competition, when episodes are taped in January, 2019.

Here are results from the High School Quiz Show Super Sunday:

  • Number of High Schools that Participated in Super Sunday: 79
  • High Score: 885
  • Low Score: 360
  • Belmont's Score: 805

“Ten years in, and High School Quiz Show is still going strong, celebrating the immense curiosity, teamwork and academic power of Massachusetts high schoolers” said host Billy Costa. “A well-deserved congratulations to our tenth season’s top sixteen teams. I know you’ll bring the heat at the tapings this winter!”

The top teams advance to compete in the televised, single-elimination, bracketed academic tournament that will determine a state champion. The season will culminate with an Interstate Invitational, featuring WGBH’s High School Quiz Show state champions competing against New Hampshire PBS’ Granite State Challenge state champions, the High School Quiz Show: Rhode Island state champions and the High School Quiz Show: Maine state champions for the final title. High School Quiz Show begins taping at WGBH in January in front of a studio audience. It will premiere Saturday, February 2 at 6pm on WGBH 2. Tickets for taping will be available in December.
