National School of Character!


Our school was just named a NATIONAL School of Character!  Two years ago, we were named a STATE School of Character, but now a higher honor has been bestowed upon us.  We are thrilled and so proud of Dr. Laughlin, our staff, and students for their diligence to live daily with great character!
