The staff is wonderful! They all have one mission and that is to make sure we all succeed in our academics.

They teachers and administrators genuinely care about students success, and prepare the greater majority of us to succeed in the future. They nurture our creative, athletic and academic skills and guide us to be the best we can be. I would love to have my children in the future attend the school system.

I love the teachers and staff. They make it fun to come to school and learn. The clubs and athletics make it even more exciting. I participate in Beta Club, FFA, National Honor's Society, Student Ambassadors, Track and Field, Cross Country, Cheerleading, Interact Club, and Yearbook. This school is unique because everybody works together to make one big Great School.Since I have been in the school, i have met many new people and they have helped me with school and with my everyday life. I would choose to go to this school again, becuase it is both athletic and educational driven.
