Extracurricular sports opportunities have a high priority with a lot of parents and students. However, the music department and art department offer a lot of extracurricular opportunities as well. The speech students enjoy their activities, but do not have the same following as sports.

Our teachers are always trying to keep us engaged in the classroom lessons. When a teacher looks at our grades and sees that we are struggling, they help that student not only in class but as well as outside class. Our teachers are very approachable and friendly, but can also discipline and keep us in line when needed.
I really loved this school and felt like a part of a great community. It may not have at the best resources being such a small school but I felt very ready for college.
