we have many academic ratings in our school. Every single student is in at least one or more academic program. I have never met a student that had been held back for bad grades. There are so many people in music, arts and sports. The students here are very athletic in many ways. If the students are not passing they will be excused from the team. The music is the part what keeps our school together. The band and chorus directors are awsome! The high school team for basketball went to state in 2006. We also had the baseball team and softball team go to state as well. We have geography bees held every single year. Last year Austin Hall a seventh grader currently won. The facility is very good. The teachers work very hard to keep us safe. The parents are involved with so much. They help with the dances and school activities. We involve the parents as much as we can. The parents give so much to the school.
