Our high school is an academically successful, rural high school that is filled to the brim with about 900 wonderful students. We serve our military community by educating students whose parents serve or work at the USMC and Naval facilities at Camp Lejeune or Cherry Point, the two Coast Guard stations, and Bogue Air Field. I teach many students across all grade levels in my choir and drama classes as well as after-school music and drama performing arts programs.
In the state's ranking system, our high-performing high school has been ranked as a top ten public high school in NC for ten consecutive years.
Through our state's report card system, we have been given an "A+" designation five years in a row.
We sustain a rich history of high-quality choral music and theatrical productions, receiving the highest ratings at state adjudications annually. The support we receive directly correlates to that success.
Even with our high achievement and growth, we are still striving to make an improvement. There's always something we can do to accelerate our excitement and recharge our learning.
One of our goals is to communicate through music globally. Music is a perfect way to explore different cultures from around the world. We perform music that is from different countries and in different languages throughout the whole school year.
Many of our pieces require instruments that originate from around the world.
With these instruments, we can be more authentic in our portrayal of the music we sing. In the past, my singers have played the instruments themselves, opening up more ways to learn and be expressive through their music. These instruments would be used in our program for many years to come.
