Sherburne-Earlville Central School - Odyssey of The Mind

Odyssey of The Mind

One of Sherburne-Earlville's extracurricular strong points is its participation in the Odyssey of the Mind problem-solving program. The students that participate in the program are known for putting in long hours (up to as much as 400 in a season) in order to perfect the 8 minute solution required by the program. The school frequently sends teams to the international-level finals competition (requiring a team to finish first at the regional-level competition and first or second in the state-level competition). Between the late 1990s and the present, Sherburne-Earlville teams advancing to World Finals has gone from being a very rare occurrence to the norm.
