From the principal: "I am so proud of the Class of 2014 and their many academic achievements and accomplishments as well as their successes in the realm of athletics, student activities and the arts. Over the past three years the members of the Class of 2014 have led the way in tripling the number of students involved in student activities and clubs; achieving two Palmetto Gold Awards; achieving two Excellent (A) South Carolina School Report Card Absolute Ratings; achieving semifinalist status in the Palmetto's Finest Program; achieving both the ACT and SAT Magna Cum Laude Awards for Excellent Performance and Rapid Improvement; exceeding college readiness national benchmarks on the ACT, Plan and PSAT assessments; and exceeding the South Carolina, national and international mean scores on Advanced Placement exams. As you can see, the members of the Class of 2014 have made their mark and will always be remembered by the Bobcat Nation as a 'Class with Class'!" -- Mark Dievendorf
