Highlands Intermediate School is a Division B school which qualified for eight national competitions at the Hawaii 2008, 2009, 2013, 2015, 2016, 2017, 2018, and the 2019 state competitions. These include the national competitions at George Washington University 2008, Augusta State University 2009, Wright State University 2013, University of Nebraska 2015, the University of Wisconsin 2016, the Wright State University 2017, Colorado State University 2018, and Cornell University 2019
At the 2018 National Tournament at Colorado State University, Highlands did the best they have in the 7 years that they have attended nationals. They advanced their placing from the previous year by 11, and decreased their score by 211 points. They placed 12th overall, with a score of 376 points. They earned a total of 3 national medals in Experimental Design, Fast Facts, and Potions and Poisons, and had two 7th places in Herpetology and Thermodynamics.
They theoretically would've placed in the top 10, however due to the competition venue having a unbalanced floor they got tiered in Roller Coaster (in other words, had Roller Coaster been thrown out for everyone, they would have placed 9th).
-In 2016, Highlands placed 3rd in the then trial event Hovercraft.
