From Our Students

“Overall I loved my time going to school in this district. I was successful academically and feel like I gained a lot of experiences that prepared me for the field I wish to work in later on in life through my teams and clubs I was involved in!”
“My High School has a lot to offer and I’m grateful to be here. We have a variety of AP & Honors classes and for the most part teachers are passionate about teaching. I love our facilities and technology, it’s top notch and allows me to feel ahead in terms of access. I feel like I’m ready to be a college student and I’m not scared of my future. I owe my readiness to this school, my peers around me who are like minded and driven and my supportive family. It really takes a lot of work on my part and everyone else’s but I know it will all be worthwhile.”
