I am a current honors student and getting a lot out of the program. I have learned a lot this year as I have the past two years. I have taken a choir class that I enjoyed, and an art/technology/home ec. combined year class that I have also enjoyed. I haven't been in sports yet, but will be trying out for the track team this spring. I've recieved academic awards for my honors and know they do have athletic award cerimonies too. It was recently updated so the classrooms are all "high-tech" now. The level of parenet involvement is mostly through P.T.O.
