Eli Browne ’23 will represent The Bishop’s School for the second consecutive year.
The National Geographic GeoBee is an annual competition designed to inspire and reward students' curiosity about the world.
The entire seventh grade participates in the annual bee at Bishop’s. We hold preliminary rounds in each Social Studies 7 class. The champion from each class goes on to participate in the final round of competition to determine a School champion. In addition to the seventh grade, Eli Browne (8th grade) also participated in the final round, as he is the defending champion from last year.
The next step for Eli is taking the proctored online qualifying test. The top 100 ranked students in each state then participate at the state level. If he qualifies again this year, he will go on to compete in the state championship.
National Geographic’s Geo Bee includes three levels of competition: school, state, and national. State champions travel to Nat Geo’s headquarters in Washington, D.C., for the national event. This academic competition is open to students in grades four through eight in public schools, private schools and homeschools throughout the U.S. Typically, students from more than 10,000 schools participate annually.
The Bishop’s School is an independent, coeducational college-preparatory day school for students in grades six through twelve who live throughout San Diego County. Founded in 1909, the School is affiliated with the Episcopal church.
