Spotlight of the Week
Mr. D. Joseph Blackwell
Educator with over 20 years experience teaching but still has the same excitement about working with students as a 1st year teacher. Although awards and accolades are not his passion, he takes pride in seeing students find their own love in literature. He is a former school assistant principal and principal, and is looking forward to marrying Ms. Erika Banks June 2020.

The BEST students deserve the BEST Teachers... we are waiting for you next year!

Welcome, Incoming Freshmen!
