As a former out of state parent, Addison and the people have showed me something I've never seen. As a close knit communitie, each and everyone proved to me that there are good people who care. Thank you too all who made a differance for me and my daughter, Chelaine McCarty, regard;s Duane McCarty 'go bulldog's'

Addison High School has a great sense of pride. No other school has the amount of commitment that Addison students have obtained. The teachers help the students when needed. The community supports the school in a tremendous way! The parents are also supportive. Many of the former students have went on to be greatly successful. I am proud to have graduated from this school.
