Student safety is our number one concern. In an effort to ensure a safe environment for our students, ALL VISITORS MUST CHECK IN AT THE OFFICE, SIGN IN, AND WEAR A VISITOR’S BADGE WHILE ON CAMPUS. Please do not sign out ahead of time. This is for your safety. All staff is trained to question any adult they see on campus during school hours without a visitor’s badge. This is for the protection of your student. Please help us keep our children safe by following these guidelines.

Public schools are nominated by each Chief State School Officer, including the Department of Defense Education Activity, and the Bureau of Indian Education. Based on state data, the nominated schools must be certified as meeting one of two eligibility criteria:
Exemplary High-Performing, defined as the achievement of the school’s students in the most recent year tested placing the school among the highest-performing in the state on assessments of reading (or English-language arts) and mathematics.
Exemplary-Improving, defined as schools that have at least 40 percent of their students from disadvantaged backgrounds and have improved student performance to high levels in English-language arts and mathematics on state assessments or assessments referenced against national norms.
