The Document Manager contains information and forms that teachers, students, and parents need. We place them here for easy access, in addition to having them available at the school. Please give us your suggestions for documents that would be helpful to you.

How to Enroll: Parents of prospective students should contact the school office or come by to receive a packet of enrollment information. The Davidson County School System does not enroll out of district students, even on a tuition basis.

Important Information for all AP students: Every student enrolled in an AP course must take the AP exam in order to receive AP weighted credit. If you do not take the exam, you will receive Honors weight instead.

APEX (AP Exam Review) is now available for all Davidson County AP students. Please see your teacher or Mrs. Allen for login information.
