School safety

Safety and security are primary areas of concentration. We have strict safety procedures in place that all visitors must follow before entering the building and we require appointments for adults to enter our building which has significantly reduced the number of outside people within our school. We work in close contact with our local police department and have a School Resource Officer on premises at all times.

Technology

We offer a variety of courses in engineering, architecture, and technology. A highlight is our Robotics program. Students have multiple opportunities to learn in an integrated STEAM environment and students consistently place in local competitions.
