The school was first dedicated in April, 1955, and today, serves more than 1,600 students in grades 9-12. Its 220 teachers, teacher assistants and support staff members are committed to producing graduates who can meet the academic rigors of college and excel in the 21st century workplace.

More than half the class earns an Advanced Regents diploma and a number of students take Advanced Placement and college-level courses while in high school. Approximately 65 percent of students, on average, are involved in athletics and/or student clubs and organizations.
