The Principal’s Honor Roll is awarded to those students who earned A’s in all their subjects, both required core subjects and electives. 

There was also an award given to those students who demonstrated outstanding character qualities, such as patience, self-control, faithfulness and love toward others.

The main campus in Niceville, includes classes from K3 to 12th grade, and the Destin location includes classes K5 to 6th grade and a newly developed Talent Development class that is designed to meet needs of students with a variety of learning differences.
