I really feel like this is a great place for everyone. Middle school has a rep for being awful, but, as a graduated student(2017), I can tell you that I didn't have that experience here. I met some lifelong friends here, and I got a head start on several classes and racked up at least three high school credits while I was here. I'm proud as heck to have gone here, because everyone was great. I met lifelong friends here.
Special acknowledgements to the following teachers:
Mr. Kirshberger is the reason for which I love space and science. While he no longer teaches here, I am proud to have been in his class. Best teacher on the freaking planet!
Ms. Ramsey is an example of that one person who inspired you for life. Being in her class, I started writing and I'm proud of it too.
And extra-special blessings upon Mrs. Olsen, the band director. She encouraged and inspired me in so many ways during my three years of trumpet playing.

I have had the blessing of having some of the best teachers. They all work a lot harder than necessary and go above and beyond to provide the best education they can to their students. They put in countless hours making sure that classes go the way they should and providing the best tool.s to students. Most go further then the SOL requirements for the states, teaching the students more than they need to know on the subject, because they are extremely dedicated to their jobs.
There are only a select few clubs available to students. The most prominent organizations are the theater department and the choral program. These organizations receive little funding from the county and mostly rely on the students, parents, and patrons.
