A Tabb High student has achieved a rare accomplishment - she earned a perfect score on her college admissions test. Junior Paola Amadeo scored the highest possible ACT composite score - a 36. The ACT consists of tests in English, mathematics, reading and science, each scored on a scale of 1–36. A student's composite score is the average of the four test scores. To put this in perspective, only around two-tenths of 1 percent of students who take the ACT earn this top score

Congratulations to York High School students David Patterson, TyeScheidegger, Ngan Quach, and Andrew Stewart. These four YorkHigh School students have been invited to travel to Houston, Texas in April to present an engineering project to NASA engineers and astronauts as part of their participation in the NASA HUNCH Program. The HUNCH program partners NASA mentors with students around the country and challenges students with fabricatingreal-world products for NASA as they apply their science, technology, engineering and mathematics skills as well as learning to work in teams and think creatively. Patterson and Scheidegger developed a clamp system for the ARED (advanced resistive exercise device), which is an exercise machine on the International Space Station (ISS) used to help keep astronauts healthy in the zero-g environment. Student teams were challenged to developa clip or bracket that can keep the lifting arm from floating around the station when the ARED is not in use. Quach and S

Tabb High School Modified Lockdown

Posted on: Wednesday, March 06, 2019

Shortly before noon today, Tabb High School reported receiving threatening phone calls. The calls were in relation to last week’s incident at Tabb High School which was captured on video and spread nationwide via social media. As a precaution, the school immediately initiated a modified lockdown. After-school activities were also canceled. We are working closely with the York-Poquoson Sheriff’s Office as law enforcement investigates the phone calls. The York-Poquoson Sheriff’s Office provided additional deputies at Tabb High today to assist in maintaining a safe and orderly environment in our school, and additional deputies will be onsite tomorrow as well, simply as a precaution and reassurance to families. As staff continue to work with law enforcement, we would like to ask our community’s assistance in this matter as well. Please use this as an opportunity to talk as a family about the importance of reporting concerns and the dangers of using social media to create or advance rumors
