We want you to be part of the Silver and Black and our tradition of success. We have school spirit, tradition, and endless clubs and organizations that will make you feel at home. Being a Knight is more than wearing the silver and black. It is about being in the student section as we get ready to bring up our shield and sword, then releasing the boom! It is about our drumline and cheer squad marching down the hallway to get us ready for game day. It is about standing next to hundreds of your friends cheering and participating with our highly acclaimed marching band to the tune of our fight song. And before you know it, four years later, you will be dressed in your cap and gown preparing to step into the future.
