Principal's reflections on the Class of 2020: The Class of 2020 will always be remembered for their great school spirit and perseverance. They loved being Whip-Purs, and always brought incredible positive energy to big school events like pep rallies and games. They excelled academically, scoring the highest on state exams in math and reading since we switched to the SAT. They were also abundantly talented in the arts, creating memorable performances in drama and music.
