Everyone loves a winner and everyone in the Palm Beach County School District loves Alexander W. Dreyfoos School of the Arts Academic Challenge Team who took home the first place trophy for the District on Wednesday January 22. Team members include captain Charlie Krumholz (senior, Visual Arts), Michael Dinh (senior, Keyboard), Jarrod Carman (senior, Communications), Felipe Bomeny (junior, Strings), Ximena Hasbach (junior, Communications) and Taisuke Yasuda (junior, Strings). The team is coached by Dreyfoos Social Studies teacher Sara Stout.

According to a press release by SDPBC, the Commissioner’s Academic Challenge is a highly academic statewide high school tournament inaugurated in 1986. Rather than a quick response, trivial pursuit contest, this is a slower-paced tournament in which players are asked questions from the areas of language arts, mathematics, science, social studies, the fine arts, world languages (French and Spanish), the humanities and technology. Educators from high schools throughout the state write the questions.

One team consisting of six high school students and one coach is selected to represent each school district. Dreyfoos Senior Michael Dinh will be a member of Palm Beach County’s all-star team, representing the art and music category. He earned this distinction by scoring more points in the art and music category than any other participant. He, along with the other all-stars, will participate in the state competition to be held in Orlando, FL in April.

Dreyfoos School of the Arts, located in downtown West Palm Beach continues to be a powerhouse of artistic talent and academically gifted students – this past year ranking #39 in the nation by Newsweek magazine on their top US high school listing.
