How many high schools are involved in your team?

In this thread, Not2B mentioned that his team is made up of students from four different high schools.

My team is made up of four high schools (Warren Mott, Cousino, Sterling Heights, and MMSTC, aka the Math Science Center), but they're all in the same district (Warren Consolidated).

How common are FIRST teams with multiple high schools involved? When looking at multiple-school teams, how often are the schools involved from different districts?

(Admittedly, this isn't really important...but I'm curious. )

Well my team has students from Parkview, Central, Pulaski Academy, North Little Rock, McClellan, in the past Robinson but not this year. That's 5 high schools from 3 districts plus a private school. We also have 2 colleges involved.

There are technically 3 high schools on our team, but there are really only 2 that participate. THe last one is our "alternative high school" that basically only is used by the pregnant girls and the juvi kids.

We, at 296, are a single-school team, though a small one. I too am curious about multiple-school teams. I would think that it would be very complicated due to transportation issues to have team meetings, build sessions, etc if the team members are scattered all around (but I live in a big city, so what do I know).

Our team is just one high school, however we're the only high school in our district (and within a twenty mile radius!).

Our team contains members only from our high school. However, there are other high schools nearby (within 20 miles).

We have two rival schools from two different school districts on one robotics' team. We had members from Palisades High School in Palos Verdes last year cuz they don't have their own team. We have a few jr hi and elementary kids.

Both districts are very involved.

palisades hs? woooow.. my cousin goes there =) thats pretty cool, and 188 is doing an exchange with 22, so we are going to attend the socal regional in 2005 barring any kind of travel restriction or whatever

but back to the topic at hand. it seems to me that the vast vasty majority of Canadian teams are from one school only. from the TDSB alone, (toronto board) we probably have around 40-60 teams (most rookies this year) that function on their own =). which is kind of funny when you think about it, because the average population of a high school here is about the size of a middle school in CA (or so my cousin tells me..hehe) but yeah, as far as i know, there may only be a couple of multi school teams. 188 is all woburn people.. etc etc.

I heard about that! We're considering beginning to do something like that.

I got all of you beat at 5 schools. Waverly, Athens, Troy, Towanda, and NorthEast Bradford. Yes, they are all different districts. Waverly, Athens, Troy, and NorthEast Bradford are all about 30 minutes from Towanda (that's where most meetings are held).

Oh, and you can also say we cover two counties...and, come to think of it, two states (Waverly is in NY, the rest are in PA).

Would you believe 14?

MOE has you all beat. It varies, but last year we had 14 different schools represented from 3 different states, including one home-schooled.

226 has two high schools from the same district (robotics is one of the two things they combined on, rivals for everything else).

1313 we technically only have one high school, but we also have homeschoolers. We considered adding another, but they are having issues with teacher strikes and contracts and stuff and working with that district was too much work. We may add more next year.

We have students from two high schools in the same district. The district opened a new high school last year to reduce crowding and the students on the team got split between the two schools. The team meets at the old high school where we already had space. It works well because the schools are only about 5 miles apart.

Last year I had a child in each high school because they left the seniors at the old school. Two marching bands, two choruses, too much! I attended two marching band competitions on one day, one twenty miles west of home, the other thirty miles east. I managed (barely) to see both bands perform. If I had been on two FIRST teams I would have become schizophrenic.

team hammond has all four public high schools in hammond (gavit high, hammond high, morton high, and clark high) on it, but we are still pretty small- we only have between 20- 30 people on the team each year.
