Message from the Principal

It is my pleasure to welcome you to the 2015-2016 school year. Last school year proved to be one of the best years in history with our football and boys tennis teams winning the state championships followed by championships by our academic team and colorguard. With the emphasis we place on Athletics, Academics, and the Arts, this is the first time ever we have won state championships in all three areas. What an awesome accomplishment for our students and we take great pride in sharing this with our community.
