New facilities are opening January 2013. Students are enthusiastic, intellectually diverse, & involved in many regular + nontraditional extracurricular activities including soccer, swimming, golf, volleyball, archery, fishing, science club, future problem solving, Mock Trial, dance, cheerleading, and more.
