NEW Engineering Academy Info

We are excited to be able to offer our students the opportunity to take part in our brand new Engineering Academy. Because this was not listed as an option on course cards during course selections, we would like to give anyone interested the opportunity to learn more about it during registration.

Mr. Brian Copes, who will be teaching the courses, will be available during schedule pickup on July 28 and 29 to answer any questions you may have. He will have a sign-up sheet for the courses if you decide to change your schedule to this academy. There will be no charge for making this request change, but space will be limited and we cannot guarantee that the request will take place.

Please see our webpage for a course description of these classes.


New Student & Freshman Orientation

Monday, August 4, 6 p.m. - 8 p.m.

This is a time for rising 9th graders and newly enrolled students to meet their peer helper, take a tour of the school, and learn about our policies and procedures.  If you have any questions, please contact the main office.
