Principal Clarence Lavarias had this to say about the extraordinary class of 2011: "With less than 200 students and not all reporting their scholarship and awards information, for the class to receive over 3.3 million dollars in scholarships and awards is amazing. Our community should be very proud of our students and their accomplishments."
