8th Grade Class Sponsor

Eighth grade students have the most opportunities of any grade level. They can take almost any elective, hold any Student Body Office, and can participate in many special activities and outings, including the Eighth Grade East Coast Class Trip, fun evenings at Knott's Scary Farm and Magic Mountain, and Culmination in June.

Students in the Modern Media and Communication make films, participating in every phase of the process, and present their finished work at the Palms Film Festival.
