The school year is rapidly nearing the end. We have had students do amazing things this school year and we are proud of their effort. Spring is busy with activities for all age groups, (several field trips, sporting events, prom and senior trip to name a few). These activities enhance our students' education. Our construction project is moving along and we will keep adding pictures to our website to show updates.
Dora R-III senior Taylor Brooks earns admission to the United States Military Academy in West Point, NY.
From the West Point website: "Each year, thousands of high school students apply for admission to USMA, but only a few are accepted. Being accepted for admission to the United States Military Academy (USMA) at West Point is an exceptional honor reserved for our nation’s most promising students. But it takes more than excellent grades to be accepted for admission. West Point wants leaders who are not only intelligent, who are physically fit and of outstanding character. Those who are selected to attend USMA receive a college education that is unparalleled in the world with tuition, room and board, and expenses fully paid.
Upon graduation and throughout your life, your West Point degree will speak volumes about your abilities, character, and leadership. You will be part of a highly distinguished and internationally respected membership – a member of the Long Gray Line."
