The school is lacking in extracurricular sports, primarily due to the fact that the school is less than 10 years old, however academically it is an outstanding school. But if you're looking for your kid to get an athletic scholarship for college, you might want to rent or move 15 miles up the road and enroll them in Livingston ISD which is a 4A school.
