We’ve been asked why we are pushing for this referendum. In a word – growth! In the past several years, we have outgrown our current facilities. This is a good thing! We’re so glad that people love our community but we must move forward with plans in order to properly handle this growth. Below are just some of the issues that we have experienced in the last years due to this growth and know that we will continue to challenge us per the projected student population for the next 5 years.
