    Drivers Education: Takes teens through the driving experience not only to provide the knowledge to pass the written exam, but to gain experience in situations that could happen on the roads today.
    Here are links to my current Drivers Ed classes!


    Physical Education: Physical Education is an integral part of the total education program. It is that phase of education which provides an opportunity, through activity, for physical, mental and social development. Students will have the opportunity to participate in a variety of team sports, lifetime activities and personal physical fitness programs. It is our mission at the high school to empower all students to sustain regular, lifelong physical activity as a foundation for a healthy, productive and fulfilling life. And of course, have some FUN in the process!
