• Whiz Quiz began in the Fort Worth ISD during the 1977-78 school-year at Paschal High School, but quickly spread to a District-wide competition in high schools and middle schools.  Five-member teams representing different schools compete against the clock and each other.  There is a 6th grade team and a 7/8th grade team.  It is a Jeopardy style competition.  Our students learn to compete and succeed in the academic arenas.  See Ms. McKown to join the team!


    Below are sample questions from a competition. 

    • To which of the animal kingdom do bacteria belong?
    • Saul Bellow’s favorite of his own novels, Henderson, the Rain King, tells of an American’s adventures on which continent?
    • What do we call the offspring of a raccoon, a hyena, a cheetah, or a panda?
