Boys sports is exemplary -- the Head Football coach is also a Vice Principal. Girls sports is about average. Bands - Jazz, Concert, Marching, and Ensembles. Choirs - Concert, Show, Select. The school awards a number of scholarships, and the district maintains an Education Foundation for support of special program funding. PTSO is fledgling, but there are a number of athletic and music parent groups who are highly involved with program support and fund raising. There have been some minor incidents of fighting, but no serious crimes have marred the academic landscape. The county has a collaboration with county honors high schools, such as Allied Health, High Tech, Communications High, and a Marine Science Academy which accepts a limited number of incoming freshmen.
