On Sports & Fitness: Having a old out dated school and overall atheltic and fitness program, I am proud to know that over the years we have faired good in football, Champs in Baseball and Dual State Champs in Boys and Girls Basketball. Having below standard equipment has not stopped excellent leadership or participants.

On Resources & Facilities: I feel being a part of the Pulaski County Special School District has always been a negative shadow for us, the buildings are old and very out of date. Our teachers and staff have done tremendous things for me and the commnuity. They have worked hard and long in the fight to give us a greater education and a chance to have our own district. Our school has always been treated as the step child.
