What We Fund
While government funding covers the basics, donations from parents and community enable supplemental programs that enhance our students’ educational experience — from STEM to applied arts and performing arts, to athletics and Robotics, plus college readiness programs.
The Foundation proudly presented the District with our largest gift to date – $365,000 !

Robotics has been a huge part of my high school experience. I’ve learned a lot of technical skills, as well as how to work in a team and communicate well with others.
