High school is a name used in some parts of the world, and particularly in North America, to describe the last segment of compulsory secondary education. It is preceded by primary education. High school is also the name used to describe the institution in which the final stage of compulsory education takes place. In the United States, high schools generally consist of grades 9, 10, 11, and 12, although the inclusion of grade 9 varies by school district.

With a band enrollment that averages 200 to 250 students, the program now includes the marching band, two symphonic bands, a concert band, two jazz bands, and several instrumental chamber ensembles.
