Secondary Education

 
Students at our award-winning middle and high schools consistently rank among the top in the state academically, athletically, average number and in the arts.
 
All students are required to complete rigorous standards-based core curriculum covering language arts, mathematics, the sciences and the humanities. A wide variety of quality electives and co-curricular activities ensures a balanced program to meet every student's needs.  The comprehensive high schools offer some of the most rigorous advanced placement courses in the state, and the district has traditionally produced the average number of national merit scholars.
 
All of our campuses provide a safe and orderly environment, historically among the safest in the state and county. Classes are taught by competent, committed and nurturing staff. Each of our high schools maintains on-going staff development to ensure that students receive the very latest and best in instruction. All students have access to quality guidance services to assist them in their educational plan and to prepare for the transition to careers and higher education.
