My Students

The mission of our school is to provide a whole school community that strives to challenge students and enrich the learning process through our seven core values. Here, we dedicate each day to achieving high academic standards and developing character. We support and nurture the whole child, and we work tirelessly to ensure that all children are given the opportunity to succeed and become productive members of a global society.

Within the last two years, several of the smaller schools in our district have closed and consolidated in order to combat the declining population and budget restraints.

Prior to the consolidation, there were four high schools. Currently, there are only two public high schools in our district, and residents now identify themselves based on their affiliation with a school. The consolidation of the schools has resulted in an interlinking and continuous fellowship among the residents within the county.

My Project

"Do you have a poster I can 'borrow' for my project?" This is not an uncommon question. It is common knowledge that often teachers assign projects and other assignments that require students to have essential materials. It is also common in our school that many students do not have the funds to purchase many of the materials required for such tasks. Quite often students come and ask for materials for classroom projects. The small supplement given to us by our school is not always enough to have these supplies on hand.

The sharpies, highlighters, poster boards, and erasers will be available to students as needed to help them complete assignments in areas such as science, math, English, history, and other subjects.
