School Info

The school is entirely comprised of 8th and 9th graders, creating a team structure in which there are almost always 10 eighth and 5 ninth graders, except for those very rare years when they have 4 ninth graders.

Team Info

The team shares its resources with Drake Middle School, a school of 7th graders. Coaches are usually students from Auburn High School. Usually, there is no differentiation between the two teams except at competition; they are referred to collectively as "AMSSO", or "Auburn Middle School Science Organization". It is quite often the case when they have enough medals to exceed the number of events (e.g. "We got 32 medals!") that people become confused. From their webpage: "Our organization provides real-world competition and leadership opportunities. This model coordinates J. F. Drake Middle School, Auburn Junior High School and Auburn High School in a learning community." Therefore, the Science Olympiad team coordinates all these schools, only splitting into separate schools for competition.
