  • When I was there about 42 years ago, Mr. Brantley was the principal and was he strict and instilled integrity in all students. I am still proud of my school and would like to obtain a 1967 Yearbook.

  • The teachers were cool and I had great friends. I guess the quality of learning was good overall because I was in college prep and they made sure that they gave me some challenging school work.
