Our Pride
Sherry Wells, principal, says, “The best thing about our school is the staff and how they work together for the entire school. All of our programs support each other. We work to build a strong student focused learning program that meets our students with needs as well as our students in the Advanced Placement program. All of these students also have the opportunity to participate in all electives, especially in the arts. We welcome all levels of students to get involved and participate above and beyond the classroom. From our superior rated band and chorus to hosting our districts first dance festival, the excitement of the arts is a vital part of our school.”

A Visit to Our School:
Our staff and students are so proud of what we have accomplished in such a short time. Many of our students have not had the opportunity to experience being a part of something successful. Our arts programs have provided this for our students and they are excited to tell you how.

Our Special Arts Programs:
The true dedication of the staff and their willingness to work with students who have not had previous access to a successful arts curriculum.
