Enrollment was 686 students in September 2008.[3] The current school building was constructed in 1922 and has been added to extensively over the years. The last major addition was made in the 1965, which added a new technical wing and gymnasiums. In 2012 the auditorium was upgraded with new seats and equipment. Spearheaded by business and tech teacher Todd Ford, the school raised funds through community donations and fundraisers.
