Partnership with Businesses

Karns High School is excited to announce the opportunity for businesses to advertise their company while supporting their community school at the same time. At Karns High School, we know that strong support by families and businesses brings our community closer together. We look forward to working collaboratively to ensure our students’ educational achievements.

We are selling Business Banners which we will be proudly displayed along the fence at our main entrance. This is a great way to advertise your business and to let the community know that you proudly support our Karns High School!
