A diver springs upward with an initial speed of 2.0 m/s from a 2.5-m board. Find the velocity with which he strikes the water.

Hint: When the diver reaches the water, his displacement is y = -2.5 m (measured from the board), assuming that the downward direction is chosen as the negative direction.

i already figured out that the highest pt he can reach above water is 2.708 m

How did you figure out the higest point I am still struggling eith that.
