HHS - Super Quiz

This is for the students of Heritage High School who have worked so hard to try to make their dreams of going to Hawaii reality! Try your best to get the perfect 1000 to secure gold as well as a trip to nationals!

Do you have the skill necessary to get the perfect score to punch your ticket to the "Aloha State." Well lets find out! Good luck and as said in one of the Star Trek or Star Wars movies "May the force be with you."
