My Students

Our school has around 800 students from Kindergarten through the 12th grade and has been serving Taylor and surrounding cities since 2002.

We offer athletic sports teams to our 6th-12th graders and currently have roughly 150 student-athletes.

While we encourage a winning attitude, my ultimate goal as a new Athletic Director is to develop bright, responsible citizens that are committed to academic excellence and embrace the true meaning of sportsmanship.

Since we are such a small school, we’ve always depended on our parents to fund all athletic programs that their children are involved in. Because of this, the funds left over after paying our coaches and officials - there are little to no funds left over to improve our facility.

As a whole, we are confident that participation in our sports makes a positive difference in our students' lives, as hard work, self-discipline; team effort and commitment are all character traits and values stressed through our sports programs, I would love to get them updated equipment to improve our gymnasium so that their athletic experience here is the best it can be! They deserve it!

My Project

As a small school we do not have a football team and as the Athletic Director I decided to add Flag Football. The flag football team needs bleacher seating for their practices and for games! Also, during spring sports season our middle school baseball team, and varsity softball and baseball teams would use these benches at practices and during scrimmages since we do not have dugouts. This would be a tremendous addition to our athletic department and would benefit all of our spring student-athletes! It may be a small thing, but it will go a long way in making them successful and feel valued.
