  • Support the College and Career Pathways to promote digitally responsible students and global citizens

A Message From Our Principal

Kristin Dupree

Parents and Students,

As we embark on the final trimester of the 2017-18 school year and approach testing season, take a moment to reflect on all you have learned this year. My hope is that we have lit a spark of curiosity and that you will continue working hard for the remainder of the school year. Finish strong and show that Mustang PRIDE!

Kristin Dupree
