  • At this time of year, I like to reflect back on how we have been blessed this past year.  Sometimes, we get so busy we don’t stop to think about what we have accomplished in the past year.  I decided to list just a few that pop into my head:  (Please forgive me if I leave anything out, because great things are happening every day)
  • Provided a high quality education for almost 1900 students each and every day.  Professionally educating all students including:  gifted students, special needs students, alternative education students, and bilingual.

  • Provided breakfast and lunches for hundreds of students each and every day.  Although faced with strict mandates our child nutrition program is rated very high by our State Dept. of Education.

  • Provided safe transportation to hundreds of students every day to school and extracurricular events. 

  • Provided some of the best and cleanest facilities and grounds in the State.

  • Our staff is coming out of one of the most challenging times ever to be a teacher and have great momentum moving forward!

  • Has high ACT and state test scores and continue to work to improve.

  • Career pathways are developed so parents and students can start working toward a plan of study at the high school level.  Our multi-media, robotics competitions and a design/engineering competition help kids connect school to life. 

  • Provided the highest quality extracurricular activities in all areas, led by value driven sponsors/teachers/coaches.

  • Our school is not only stressing academics but also works service education into our curriculum and developing global education opportunities.
