Active Students are Successful Students!
Research conducted over the last few decades has consistently shown that participation in school athletics, clubs, and other activities has a positive effect on student achievement*. Students that are on sports teams and in organizations like band and choir, FFA, 4-H, FBLA, Rodeo Team and other clubs often have better attendance, higher grades, higher test scores, and higher graduation rates.
Carbon 1 believes that engaged, active students become successful adults. We are committed to providing our students with a variety of opportunities to participate in their school community and pursue their personal interests.
