The school was built in 1967 and is situated on 6.41 acres. The school has 24 classrooms, a two-station gymnasium, a music room, an art room, CTS shop, Foods/Fashion lab, a cafeteria, a multi platform computer lab, and a courtyard.

# In our best attempts to meet the diverse needs of students and because we are committed to meeting the unique needs of adolescent learners, the school program is structured around the following points: Planning for purposeful, challenging learning activities fosters academic success
# The integration of core and complementary subjects strengthens learning
# Each student is known well by the cluster staff and administration
# The needs of some learners must be supported outside the regular classroom
# Communication precedes decision making when building a strong foundation to support quality learning
# Good stewardship of resources and the school building are essential to quality learning.
# Strong extra curricular activities/clubs, intramurals and interschool sports teams.

Clusters:In an effort to support cross-curricular and grade team planning, the school is organized into a "cluster" system of groups. Each grade level is at the core of the cluster. In an attempt to help the students build strong relationships with the adults in the building, the complementary and physical education teachers are also included in these cluster groups, sharing the responsibility of home room with the academic teachers.
