Our middle school building is on schedule! This morning the Board of Directors and parents who were here for the Board meeting toured the building under renovation. Everyone agreed it’s looking great ! Our construction company is making great progress with building our middle school. We are ordering lockers, furniture, telephones, textbooks, technology equipment and more to help our middle school come to life and thrive ! We can’t wait for opening day!
At this time we are processing a few new enrollments and meeting those new incoming students. We do have a waitlist for all grade levels and we are fully enrolled ! Those interested in getting on our wait list can apply at our online application.
