Senior School Robotics Whoa!Bots Team Earns an Impressive Finish
The Senior School Robotics team, named the Whoa!Bots, competed in the Southwestern Pennsylvania FIRST Tech Challenge on Saturday, January 13. In a year of extraordinary growth, the Whoa!Bots fell just short of winning the tournament, earning a remarkable second place finish in the Finalist Alliance out of the 21 teams that entered the competition.
The 1990s were years of strategic planning, campus expansion and increased diversity. The Academy began to shift from a community school built on strong traditions and a proud history to what many considered the "school of choice" in the greater Pittsburgh area. To accommodate for growth in the student population, Headmaster Ham Clark and the Board of Trustees implemented a new Master Plan for campus expansion that included many new academic spaces on campus.
