Grant's Academic Decathlon Team Places 4th at LAUSD Competition

Academic Decathletes prepare for tests in 10 subjects around a central theme or topic.  This year's theme is Africa.  Our decathletes each dedicate hundreds of hours preparing in math, literature, art, history, economics, music, speech, essay, interview, and social studies.
 
We are immensely proud of all our decathletes!
