A Tradition of Excellence

Philosophy Statement
Our school district places the highest emphasis on the overall quality of the educational experience and on the successful completion of all students' academic programs. The athletics program likewise affirms academics as the highest priority in life of our student-athletes. In so doing, we seek to strengthen the integration of athletic program objectives with academic and developmental objectives.

Mission Statement
Recognizing that the students have needs and interest that go beyond the scope of academic life, the school district is committed to providing an interscholastic program consistent with those needs and interest. Recognizing, further, the positive impact of athletics participation on individual development, and consistent with the school district's academic doctrine, the athletics program seeks to pursue excellence through hard work and encourages attitudes of integrity and fairness, respect for others, teamwork, and dedication to goals.
