 “Our goal in the 2019-2020 school year is to continue our efforts to deliver on our promise of Every Thoroughbred, Every Day, All Means ALL!  We will place renewed emphasis on literacy because a students ability to read, write, and speak is a direct indication of their career and college readiness.  We will also strive to have our Advanced Placement course enrollment match our school thus ensuring that all students have the skills to be successful in life.”
