Welcome. We are dedicated to preparing every student for life beyond high school, no matter what path that is. We encourage everyone to become active in the many, varied activities we offer, whether it be sports, band, clubs, community service projects, or plays. We have something for everyone!
Academically, we have a variety of AP classes and very rigorous courses in math, science, English, social studies, and world language. Along with these core classes, we have CTE (Career and Technical Education) classes with some new offerings, including gaming design, Adobe Visual Design, culinary arts, child development, and public safety. We also have many online opportunities and the College and Career Promise Program, which allows students to earn college credits while enrolled in high school. (More information is available about the College and Career Promise Program on our district website www.daretolearn.org.)
To help our students achieve, our school is on its sixth year of our one-on-one initiative, making a Chromebook available to each student.
The many accomplishments and achievements of our students reflect a shared dedication by our staff, students, parents, and community to provide the best learning opportunities for all of our young people. For the 2016-2017 and 2017-2018 school years, our school received a grade of “A” from the State. Both years we were one of the very few schools in North Carolina to achieve this designation. We have exceeded growth for four consecutive years and expect to do so again. We continue to work toward that end by the use of Intervention Time (IT), Saturday School, and computer-assisted programs.
Our website is one of the several new tools to promote parent and community engagement in the academic, athletic, and artistic endeavors of our young people and celebrating in their successes. Additionally, you can access student attendance and academic progress through the parent portal of PowerSchool.
Good luck, and have a very productive year!
