The SJH Academic Team competes in the National Academic League (NAL) against other junior high schools in the Mesa School District.  NAL utilizes problem solving, teamwork, public speaking, and quick recall in four (4) timed quarters.  Content will be based on the curriculum areas of Math, Science, Social Studies, English/Language Arts, and current events.

The NAL season starts in early January and ends in mid February.  However, we will be meeting weekly beforehand to start practicing in November, after Fall Break.  First practice will be Thursday November 7th 2019 after school in room 136.  Practices/matches will be on Tuesdays or Thursdays.  See NAL-Calendar for details.  Home matches will be located in the library.
