It covers 175 square miles. The district is composed of four grade schools, one middle school, and one high school. 
     Circle has been participating in B.E.S.T. for many years. We have advanced to the Regional Competition in Fort Smith, Arkansas as well as in Texas. There are approximately fifty-five students on our team each year. We divide ourselves into several smaller departments that aid in the development of our product. These teams consist of the robot, presentation, notebook, display, spirit, game floor teams. Each group has a leader that changes every year. These group leaders are responsible for meeting and collaborating with the other departments, and give summaries of the process for the week.  Information regarding each
member is available on the Student Profiles page or you can click here.
    The Circle High School B.E.S.T. program is divided into several groups and categories. Each group has a lead and one or more managers. Leads are responsible for the department. Leads also must communicate between each other for the benefit of the entire team. You can view our team department breakdown here.
    We have created a short documentary video below, that helps describe the importance of Circle B.E.S.T. It also describes several of our members and their role in Circle B.E.S.T. Enjoy!
