This point of pride can be shared by all faculty and staff as continued evidence of our high academic standards in all subject areas. Our success is a testament to the shared ownership of learning by our teachers and students, as well as the shared support by our families.
Thank you to our teachers and students for being their best,
P.S. A continued token of appreciation to the North Carolina General Assembly for allocated funding in the budget to pay for all public and charter students enrolled in Advanced Placement courses to take the exams with no cost to the families.
