BIS Life

Why BIS?

BIS Digital Media students Cassidy Layton and Katie Niedermeyer created a video describing the School of BIS from student and teacher's perspectives through interviews and photo montages.

Digital Media is an introductory course to the digital arts. Students learn how to use Adobe Photoshop, Windows Movie Maker, and Adobe Dreamweaver to edit and create unique projects.

BIS Clubs and Activities

BIS students have many opportunities to participate in extra curricular activities. All athletics, clubs, and academic activities at Crater are available to BIS students. We encourage BIS students to participate in extra curricular activities to enrich their BIS experience.


DECA prepares emerging leaders and entrepreneurs in marketing, finance, hospitality and management in high schools and colleges around the globe.

DECA members can begin their participation in high school as early as ninth grade. To be prepared for both college and careers, DECA members are taking advantage of the new programs of study in Marketing, Business Administration, Finance, and Hospitality.

DECA members organize into local chapters that are engaged in preparing high school and college students for careers in marketing, finance, hospitality and management.

The National FFA Organization (also known as Future Farmers of America) envisions a future in wh​ich all agricultural education students will discover their passion in life and build on that insight to chart the course for their educations, career and personal future.

FFA continues to help the next generation rise up to meet the challenges of a growing population by helping its members to develop their own unique talents and explore their interests in a broad range of career pathways.

So today, we are still the Future Farmers of America. But, we are the Future Biologists, Future Chemists, Future Veterinarians, Future Engineers and Future Entrepreneurs of America, too.

The heart of the National FFA Organization is at the local chapter level. Leadership is provided by student officers who are elected each year by the chapter's members, and by the agriculture teacher who serves as the advisor for the chapter.

BIS Student Board of Directors

The BIS Board is the student-elected governing body that gives BIS students the ability to work closely with teachers and staff in organizing and facilitating school events and activities.

The BIS board is composed of two elected students from each grade level. Elections are held every year in January, and positions are held for an entire calendar year.

BIS Board is responsible for planning events such as "BISemblies," facility improvements, BIS Tutor Center (BTC), the Club Fair, and many more campus-wide events and activities!

The BIS Board looks to improve BIS Life and incorporate the BIS student body in generating ideas for school events through the BIS Board Blog.
