SHS is a public comprehensive high school with rigorous
academic 
programs for students in grades 9-12. Almost 100 faculty and support staff are dedicated to both SHS traditions and to ensuring that each of the approximately 1200 students attain their educational goals.  Students follow a trimester schedule designed to further enhance the academic environment with even more class time for a variety of learning experiences, more teacher/student interaction time, greater opportunities for problem-solving and group activities. SHS offers enrichment through Honors, Advanced Placement, and College Credit Plus* classes. In addition, SHS students may also choose to enroll in a two-year vocational program offered through Penta Career Center. Opportunities abound for community service, leadership development and character building - all interwoven into SHS academic and extracurricular programs. 

In 2017, Springfield High School's Students In Action initiative (coordinated through the prestigious
Jefferson Awards Foundation) earned the NATIONAL Ambassador GOLD Banner and was judged one of the Top TWO service initiatives in the nation! SHS AP Psychology students were named by ProMedica as their 2017 Junior Philanthropists of the Year (Toy Drive); unique offerings such as this, combined with the school's nationally respected JROTC, programs like Science Olympiad and more help prepare students for success in our global society.  

Springfield High School's Blue Devils are rich in tradition - and we want to encourage all community members to become "true blue!"

*College Credit Plus allows qualified students to receive credit for college-level courses at no cost to the student or his/her family.

Principal's Weekly Message

Taking Care of Others, and Each Other

It was no surprise, at least to me, that Springfield High School has been leading the charge with creative ways to support those whose lives have been impacted by hurricanes and tragedy.  We've collected thousands of dollars and items to support residents of Houston and the hard-hit communities in Florida.  We've done equally as much locally - Ronald McDonald House, Cherry Street Mission, our 9/11 celebration and soon the Toledo Area Humane Society.

At  our September 6th Open House, parents toured the school and visited with teachers to talk about our academics, athletics, performing arts AND service initiatives.  I am proud that these four pillars provide each student with a firm foundation on which to build their high school career.  A lot is expected of our faculty and staff - and we're up to the challenge.  A lot is expected of our students - and they have every resource needed to succeed.  One more thing - a lot is offered in support from our parent/booster organizations - they provide the extra hands, ideas, and funds to tie together the educational experiences provided to all Blue Devils.

If you missed the Open House, remember - the door to my office is always open.  The same thing can be said of our school counselors, faculty, and every member of our team.  We are here to share the good news and support families through difficulties - the best schools (and we are one of the best!) create partnerships between the home, schools and community.

We take care of others - and we take care of each other.  #springfieldstrong

Take a Look Inside SHS

We're taking the time to brag  about the rigor and relevance of the Springfield High School (SHS) academic standards and expectations (not to mention all the organizations, clubs, programs, teams, and opportunities that await each student).  They both enable and challenge students to leave high school in pursuit of attaining future career goals with good-paying jobs, training programs and post secondary education in high-demand fields.

We'd be remiss if we didn't again congratulate members of the SHS Class of 2017—this class earned over $6.5 million in scholarships to colleges and universities across the United States. While there are several measurements that can be considered in defining high rigor, many look to students’ performance on Advanced Placement (AP) tests administered by the College Board as an importance standard. SHS students are offered AP classes in Biology, Calculus AB, Calculus BC, Physics 1, Physics C/Mechanics, Psychology, and AP US History.
College credit is offered for students attaining a score of “3” or better.  The success of our 2016-17 AP students demonstrate that the faculty and staff at all Springfield schools are preparing learners for success far beyond scores on tests—they are challenging them to think critically and become leaders in what has become a very global society. Through their outstanding performance on AP Tests during the 2016-17 school year, Springfield High School students earned over 438 hours of college credit!               

Unique curricular options including AP, Honors, College Credit Plus (through which students received 504 credit hours during the 2016-17 school year) and other options such as Career Pathways, experiences with Communication/Journalism through WNLB 97.7fm—the high school’s 24/7 radio station, K-12 S.T.E.A.M., and one of the only JROTC (leadership and citizenship) programs in northern Ohio.

We're very proud of how well prepared SHS students are for success - - both today and as they pursue all that the future has in store!
