Your child is entering a school district that prides itself on being student-centered and committed to partnering with parents to ensure a positive school experience for everyone. There are eight elementary schools that house grades K-5, two middle schools that contain grades 6-7,  two grade 8-9 buildings, and two high schools for grades 10-12. The address you reside at determines which elementary and middle school your child will attend.

We encourage all parents to get involved, volunteer when they can, and communicate with the teachers. We hope you enjoy being a part of their experience.

The district will begin accepting applications for the upcoming school year starting April 1st.
