On May 31st, 2015, members of our first 9th grade class were introduced to the world at a special event for families, media, and community. It was a way of honoring those who have chosen to be first class and be in our first freshman class. Rising 9th graders gathered at our new school location to register for the upcoming school year, talk with college recruiters, and engage with their peers and teachers.
