Students are given many opportunities during their 4-year careers. We have two bands and two choirs, and every four years, the group travels to Orlando, Florida during Spring Break to perform at Disney World. Every other year students enrolled in Spanish III, IV, or V are given the opportunity to travel for approximately 10 days to Spain or some other Spanish-speaking nation. FBLA students and physics students frequently travel to Six Flags Great America to participate in class-related activities at this amusement park.
