All students are welcome to participate in athletics and there is very good involvement, team performance, fan support, school spirit and all the above.
I have enjoyed this school very much. It has a lot of opportunities for you to get involved in. I am involved in sports, clubs, and many after school activities. Our school provides many duel credit classes, that will help you for college.
