Somerville High to Compete on WGHB's 'High School Quiz Show'

It's the second year in a row Somerville will compete on the show.

Somerville High School's trivia team, for the second straight year, has made it onto WGBH's "High School Quiz Show," according to an announcement from WGBH.

The Somerville team will be one of 16 from across the state to compete on the trivia show, which airs in February.

To earn a spot in the final 16, Somerville competed against 94 other Massachusetts public high schools on Nov. 4 during "Super Sunday," when all the teams took an identical oral quiz consisting of 100 questions.

The 16 teams with the top scores were then invited to compete on the quiz show.

Somerville is one of seven teams returning to the show after appearances last year.

Last year, Somerville was knocked out of the tournament in the first round by Rockport.

Here are the other public high schools competing on this year's show:

  • Acton-Boxborough Regional High School
  • Advanced Math and Science Academy Public Charter School
  • Brookline High School
  • Chelmsford High School
  • Framingham High School
  • Hingham High School
  • Hopkinton High School
  • Lexington High School
  • Lincoln-Sudbury Regional High School
  • Needham High School
  • North Quincy High School
  • Rockport High School
  • Sharon High School
  • Somerville High School
  • Wachusett Regional High School
  • Wellesley High School

You can look for updates on the quiz show's Facebook page.
