Celebrating 11 years of innovation and outreach

About Us

It all started with one teacher’s idea to launch a new computer science program. In fall 2007, Upper School science teacher Ryan Griggs founded the after-school robotics club with just 10 students. Today, Team 2485, better known as W.A.R. Lords (We Are Robot Lords), is one of the most popular Upper School clubs, with a string of regional and national awards to its credit and a crew of loyal professional mentors and corporate sponsors.  

Our Leaders

Our First Priority

The W.A.R. Lords are from Francis Parker School in San Diego, California. As part of our FIRST® involvement, we are dedicated to spreading our message throughout San Diego and preparing our students for the rest of their lives in STEM related fields.

Where We Work

The W.A.R. Lords are located within our school at 6501 Linda Vista Road. We build in “the Shop,” which is dedicated entirely to the W.A.R. Lords, and we program in classroom 5133. Our team is lucky to have access to these spaces, which, due to the generosity of our school, allow us to practice and refine our skills.
