The district's primary focus continues to be high student achievement. We accomplish this through a concentration on continual professional development, high-quality teaching strategies and attention to our curriculum. In addition, our staff members provide the support each student needs to succeed. We are fortunate to have an outstanding school board who believes in the importance of high student achievement. Everyone associated with the school district deserves recognition for this distinction."
