Junior State of America[edit]

Founded in September 2007, Dublin Scioto's Junior State of America club has become a vibrant part of the Scioto community. From 2007 to 2014, the Junior State of America chapter attended dozens of JSA conventions in Cincinnati, Washington, D.C., and downtown Columbus. During this same time period, three Dublin Scioto students won gubernatorial races in the Ohio River Valley Junior State. Liz Litteral and D. Winston Underwood Jr. were elected by their peers to serve as Governor from 2009-2010 and 2013-2014, respectively. Tim Kocher was elected Lieutenant Governor for the 2012-2013 term.[4] D. Winston Underwood Jr. also served as Mayor of the Central Ohio District from 2012-2013.

Quiz Team[edit]

Dublin Scioto has consistently wielded a strong Quiz Team [5] that competes mainly in the In The Know tournament produced by WOSU and supported by Westfield Insurance.[6] In recent years, Dublin Scioto has advanced far under the leadership of Advisor Tim Hayes. Under captain Laszlo Seress, the 2009-2010 team advanced to the semifinals.[6] The following year under the leadership of Senior Captains Meredith Haddix and Suhas Gudhe, in addition to Senior Alex Filice and Freshman Arjun Venkataraman, the team advanced to the In The Know finals. Along the way, the team upset strong programs such as Olentangy Liberty High School, Bishop Watterson High School, and cross town rivals Dublin Coffman. Against Dublin Coffman, regulation ended with a score of 500-500. Also that season, Dublin Scioto managed to compete remarkably well against Walnut Hills High School. The 2011-2012 In The Know team, known as the Redeem Team, featured sophomore captain Arjun Venkataraman, senior president Ben Albert, senior Nick Gorelov, and sophomore vice-captain Neil Bhuta.[5] After defeatingWheelersburg High School and Grandview Heights High School in the first two rounds, Dublin Scioto faced Rutherford B. Hayes High School (Delaware, Ohio). Dublin Scioto defeated Hayes and proceeded to defeat Bishop Watterson High School. Following that victory, the team slipped passed Mount Vernon High School and defeated Bexley High School. In that, Dublin Scioto won the state championship.[citation needed]

Change of curriculum[edit]

The curriculum and student handbook at Dublin Scioto High School as well as at the other two high schools in the Dublin City School District were revised in order to conform with the International Baccalaureate degree program. These changes, which took effect in the 2008-09 school year, include a shift from a seven period day to an eight period day; and a change from year long 1.0 credit courses to semester 0.5 credit courses.[7]
