We are a 6th, 7th, and 8th grade building which typically educates 600 students per year. Academics is our foundation. We teach 5 core areas: Reading, Writing, Math, Social Studies, and Science. We have elective classes by grade level in computers, Family and Consumer Sciences, Physical Education, Health, Chorus, Band, Fine Arts, Art, and Computer Technologies.

We are proud of our sports teams such as cross country, baseball, softball, boys and girls Basketball, volleyball and track. Our students also have the opportunity to join many clubs and extracurricular activities such as Mustang Outreach, Student Council, Science Club, Year Book, Drama and the Fall Musical.
