Dimmitt, Texas - The future is also looking bright for teens in Dimmitt because of a new high school, where they are stepping it up in everything from academics to athletics.

The new and improved homemaking department, science facilities, and gymnasium are allowing some 300 students to achieve their goals.

Teacher Jackie Odom says, "The students are a little more prepared going to college. I think that time is very limited at home as far as them speaking about what they're going to do once they graduate. We offer a course that is called the Senior Seminar and this is the time that they get to really put their dreams into place."

They do so by researching colleges and careers and filling out applications.

Last year, the senior class had a 100 percent rate of those continuing on to higher education.
