SimpleIO.prompt("\nEnter Quiz 1 score: ");
String userInput = SimpleIO.readLine();
double quiz1 = Convert.toDouble(userInput);

SimpleIO.prompt("Enter Quiz 2 score: ");
userInput = SimpleIO.readLine();
double quiz2 = Convert.toDouble(userInput);

SimpleIO.prompt("Enter Quiz 3 score: ");
userInput = SimpleIO.readLine();
double quiz3 = Convert.toDouble(userInput);

SimpleIO.prompt("Enter Quiz 4 score: ");
userInput = SimpleIO.readLine();
double quiz4 = Convert.toDouble(userInput);

SimpleIO.prompt("Enter Quiz 5 score: ");
userInput = SimpleIO.readLine();
double quiz5 = Convert.toDouble(userInput);

SimpleIO.prompt("Enter Quiz 6 score: ");
userInput = SimpleIO.readLine();
double quiz6 = Convert.toDouble(userInput);

double lowest_Quiz=Math.min(Math.min(quiz1,quiz2),Math.min(quiz3,quiz4),Math.min(quiz5,quiz6));

// Compute the quiz average from the five scores
double quizAverage =
(quiz1 + quiz2 + quiz3 + quiz4 + quiz5) / 5;
System.out.println(quizAverage);
}
}

Place the values in an array, then use Arrays.sort and select the first value (the last value is the highest).
