Band program is best in Clovis, maybe even state! Honestly though, I can see why this school is rated higher than the others in the district. Our choir, vollyball team, and dance programs are also very awesome.

As much as I said I hated it, good place, saw no bullying and the teachers were for the most part supportive, good music and sports programs, and overall an ok environment, a lot of negative students though that's just my point of view.

Not sure why this school is rated higher than Yucca. When we moved to this school district I was excited for my kids. Now that it has been six months I wish I could move back. After school activities are a joke. My kids grades have dropped. They are no longer excited to go to school. Can't wait for high school, hopefully we move by then.
