The founders of GREAT

We believe in a diverse range of personnel to bring creative skills, thoughts, and ideas to the table. Our story begins with our visionary principal whose previous experience in CTE gave him a unique perspective. He assembled the core leadership and gave them the freedom to do what they do best. Be creative.
