Our school has a little above average athletic facilitiy. We do offer a wide variety of sport related activities such as football, baseball, wrestling, kickball, and basketball. All of our sports prorams are paying programs. So unfortunately if the parents are unable to pay for the student, he is not allowed to participate. We do have an above average team school spirit. The spirit of these sports also enjoy a huge fan base from the community.

Sports are very much encouraged. There are two football teams, two cheerleading squads, basketball, etc...everything's the same as the high school. They do get most of the funding, which hinders the academics and arts a lot.
The building is still relatively new, and is good for a middle school. However, it is kind of bland. All of the walls are white, with maroon accents on the doors, and there are barely any windows. More like a prison.
