There is connectedness that is almost hard to describe! Students, staff, and parents are proud of our school evidenced by strong parental support for academics, sports, and activities. The school environment fosters a positive energy that helps students socially and emotionally. Our students are taught that what matters most is being a person with integrity and character and amazing experiences will follow. As a result, our students are performing well academically and athletically. Our football team just won the Division VI-AA State Championship in December 2015!

I would like there to be more rallies, better food, and more school spirit. One reason our school does not have a lot of school spirit is because we do not have a lot of rallies. If we had more rallies, more people would be involved and spirited. We used to have a lot more rallies my freshman year, which made our student body more spirited. Also the food is not that great. It would be nice to have real fresh food, not packaged, processed food.
Fantastic small school that provides one on one counseling for students. The teachers take the time to get to know us and are strengths and opportunities. They have free tutoring sessions for students that need extra attention. They have fun activities throughout the year to keep us engaged.. BEST SCHOOL EVER!
