  • The school newspaper is The Talon.
  • On June 6, 2006, the graduating seniors' Senior Prank was capturing 3 pigs from local Kinder Farm Park and releasing them into the school. The incident made it onto WJZ-13 News and was widely publicized in the Baltimore area. The pigs were numbered "1", "2", and "4", even though there were only 3 pigs. This was to confuse administrators into searching for the nonexistent pig "3".
  • 2007 marked the first time that both the Boys' and Girls' lacrosse team won the State Championship in the same year
