Welcome to the 2019-2020 school year.

As a community education leader, we engage students everyday in a world-class education that prepares them for the demands of an evolving world.

A rigorous academic program beginning in elementary school helps students develop skills in literacy and math and advances critical thinking, creativity, communication, and collaboration skills. Staff create meaningful connections and relationships with students that foster personal development.

With over 35 high school classes that offer college credit, a comprehensive list of course offerings including music, world languages, career and technical electives, agriculture programming, and much more, students create personalized career pathways.
