ASB stands for Associated Student Body and it represents the interests and goals of the entire School Student Body. ASB is a class where students develop leadership skills..

Having a positive atmosphere during the school day where students feel wanted and accepted is critical to their success. The ASB class focus on providing engaging activities that ensure a well-rounded high school experience.
Students in ASB plan, organize, and participate in such activities as rallies, dances such as Homecoming and Prom, spirit weeks, grade-level competitions, and various lunchtime and after school activities.
