Since arriving at the Ridgeland Zone, the percussion section and the Concert Band have scored consecutive All-Superior ratings at District and State Festivals. The percussion section received 3rd place (2018) and 2nd place (2019) awards in State Marching Band Championship. The concert band received all-superior ratings at concert state evaluation in 2018 and 2019 (2020 was cancelled due to COVID).
