Incredible academic opportunities and expectations. Teachers come from a variety of institutions, and are not limited to local colleges. Many clubs are available for student participation including, but not limited to; sign language, drama, choir, etiquette, art, and community awareness. Sports include; track, cross country, wrestling, baseball, football, cheerleading, volleyball, and softball. The facilities are new and kept up beautifully. Parental involvement is extremely high.
