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!"


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

Take a Look Inside SHS
Soon, we will again be welcoming students back to school!  I enjoy working with our staff and students to prepare for these days because it reminds us all that there is so much at SHS to brag about! From the rigor and relevance of the academic standards and expectations to the opportunities and fun provided through our organizations, clubs, programs, and teams, we've got it all!

What we offer both enables and challenges students to eventually leave high school in pursuit of attaining future career goals with good-paying jobs, training programs and post secondary education in high-demand fields. Speaking of our graduates, I want to again congratulate members of the SHS Class of 2018—this class earned over $5.2 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. Soon, we will have the results from the 2017-18 testing.  Until then, let's look at the 2016-17 successes which 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 include 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 - -  In no time, we will be hosting our annual 8th Grade Open House to welcome the Class of 2023!!  If you know of a students who might like to explore the school, let me invite them to spend a "Blue Devil of a Day" with us.
