Campus[edit]

The original campus consists of three separate lunch areas, commonly known as the Freshman area, Sophomore area, and Junior and Senior area. It all consists of 1000-9000 building arrangements. All three lunch areas have a lunch distribution building for receiving breakfast and lunch. The gym, or 7000 building, also contains the weight room and the Multi-Purpose Room (MPR). A building called the Performing Arts Center (PAC), located in the 6000 building, is primarily used for assemblies, plays, concerts, and informative programs. Currently there is construction taking place on the campus, which, when completed, is rumored result in a teacher restaurant and a state-of-the-art facility for unknown purposes. There also has been a recent addition the Silverado campus known as the Early College high school.
