The district offers a wide range of programs and services, as well as cutting-edge technology, a widely respected special education program, and numerous extracurricular activities.

The district continually strives for excellence in education so that all students may reach their full potential. We are proud of our students’ and staff members’ accomplishments. On this page we list the district’s most notable highlights in academics, the arts, athletics, and staff achievement for the 2018-2019 school year. Please come back often! The page is updated on a regular basis to provide the community with the latest information on student and staff achievement. 

These accomplishments would not be possible without the efforts of the entire school district community. Thank you for your support!
