Welcome to Freshman Campus!
We take pride in assuring that our mission statement, "We are committed to provide all students with the skills they need to be life-long learners and productive citizens" is a visible and important description of our dedication to supporting student success. With over 500 students, 60 teachers and numerous support staff, our school community offers many opportunities for our students and families. Our diverse curriculum includes a variety of electives, twenty advanced placement courses, and dual credit options. We continue to expand our offerings and are adding new courses each year to meet the needs of our students. In addition, many support programs are incorporated such as the student resource center, AIM period, peer tutoring, the learning resource center, peer leaders, and a Response to Intervention system. The dedicated staff who work closely with our students, as well as, the many interventions provided results in a 92% graduation rate and over 67% of our students enrolling in post-secondary educational programs. Likewise, students are provided the opportunity to participate in 23 athletic teams and over 40 extra-curricular activities designed to engage students beyond the school day. Our Distinguished Warrior Program is designed to encourage students to excel in the classroom, participate in extra-curricular activities, make positive choices and commit to community services.
