Challenger is truly a one-of-a-kind school! The teachers and faculty are amazing and the test scores prove it. Being ranked 2nd in the state in 2011 definitely comes as no surprise! The standards are set high but there is plenty of help and support for students who may need it. It's great to see how many parents are involved with their children not only academically but also with school functions and volunteering as well. We are very blessed to have our daughter enrolled in such a wonderful school!
