We are thrilled with the accomplishments of all of our students in their various activities: academics, athletics and the arts. For example, we had six National Merit Semifinalists in the class of 2016. We had two athletes named as a 2016 Gatorade Player of the Year: Kasey Parker in girls' soccer and Jhileiya Dunlap in girls' basketball. Band, orchestra, chorus and theater students were rated superior in statewide competitions.
