Student leaders and clubs provide many opportunities that encourage the
development of social skills for all students.
In an effort to make
the transition to high school a smooth one, we offer several levels of
support. During the eighth grade year, students have the opportunity to
attend football and basketball games and attend a school play. Students
are invited to visit the school for a morning in the spring. During this
time they get a campus tour to see classes in action, and hear about
our activities in an assembly. The enrollment process occurs in the
spring as well, when incoming ninth graders and their parents choose
classes for their freshman year. Students needing extra academic support
as freshmen will be required to take Read 180 or Extended Math.
