Varsity Teams Earn Scholar-Athlete Honors

The Board of Education at its Dec. 6 meeting recognized the academic accomplishments of the high school’s varsity athletic teams. For the fall season, every varsity team earned scholar-athlete status, which means that at least 75 percent of the team members earned a 90-grade-point-average or better.
Success on the field and in the classroom requires dedication and hard work, which the varsity players are not afraid of, many of them taking challenging Advanced Placement and International Baccalaureate courses.
“We are all extremely proud of our scholar-athlete teams,” said Dr. Danielle Turner, Director of Health, Physical Education and Athletics. “This is an accomplishment that proves they are not only dedicated to their sports, but to their academic success as well and that’s a win-win combination.”
