CRLS Fall Athletics Information
Participation in high school athletics is a great experience. Students who get the opportunity to play on a team and compete interscholastically typically perform better in school, have the opportunity to build life-long friendships, learn valuable life lessons and ultimately more often achieve success in their career path. By deciding to pursue athletics and committing yourself to a team, you will not only be giving a lot to your community and teammates, but greatly benefiting in return! Download the Fall Signup and Tryout Information >>


Microsoft TEALS Program
We have a wonderful opportunity for you to get involved with our program by teaming up with TEALS as a classroom teacher. TEALS is a grassroots program that recruits, mentors and places passionate high tech professionals into high school classes as part-time teachers. The professional brings his or her subject knowledge and will join one of our CRLS classroom teachers in a team-teaching model. TEALS provides training for both parties as well as course outlines based on successful college courses. Learn more >>
