The current campus was renovated in 2002 and is a state-of-the-art facility. The school is well known for excellence in its music and drama programs. The school's drama club is a regular contender for the Schenectady Light Opera's High School Musical Award, placing 2nd in 2011 and winning first place in 2008. The girls' cross country team was ranked first in the nation for eight years, and when winning the inaugural Nike Cross Nationals in 2004 was labeled as the greatest high school girls' team in history.[2] Their boys' cross country team won the National Championship in 2005. Also known for its other successful athletic teams, such as ice hockey (New York State champion, 1999 and 2013;[3] New York State finalist, 2010–11), boys' and girls' lacrosse, boys' and girls' indoor and outdoor track and field, football, baseball, competitive cheerleading, girls' tennis, golf and skiing.
