Where Excellence Is It!

Principal's Message

Champions are not made in gyms. Champions are made from something they have deep inside them, a desire, a dream, a vision. They have to have the skill and the will. But the will must be stronger than the skill.


Muhammad Ali

Here’s to the Champion in you! Let’s have a great week!

We Make The Dream A Reality!

The function of education is to teach one to think intensively and to think critically. Intelligence plus character - that is the goal of true education. ~ Dr. Martin Luther King, Jr.

With our help, at risk students will achieve at the same rates as non-at risk students

Mr. McGowan did an excellent job making learning relevant and rigorous for students in his classroom. He integrated what students learned about goods and service in Social Studies with a math lesson. Students applied their knowledge of money. Students identified the value of coins, ordered amounts of money, and added & subtracted amounts by counting on or counting back.
