The District has a small school forest with walking trails which connect with the community walk trail (Heritage Trail). The community is very supportive of its school district which is evident with the passing of two building referendums (2009 and 2017) and the donations that have provided upgrades to our facilities: Knoll Fitness Center, Hilgemann Field (Softball), Fanetti Wrestling Center as well as new bleachers at our football field. We also enjoy tremendous support from local businesses that partner with us on our youth apprenticeship program and other work experiences.
