My son has attend this school for 4 years. As a college instructor, I find that my son is challenged and receives quality instruction. Unlike other High Schools in Escambia County, admission is by lottery selection based on middle school grades, disciplinary history, and guidance recommendations. It is the only High School in the county rated as an "A" school by the State's Department of Education. It has a high graduation rate, with most students being admitted to their first or second college choice. It also offers State Championship or playoff teams in both boys and girls athletics. It also has an award-winning Marching Band.
