Shasta High School was the first high school in Shasta County. Since its inception in 1899, our school has become the largest and highest academically performing high school in our county. We currently serve 1350 students in grades nine through twelve; 102 of these students are concurrently enrolled in CTE programs housed at SHS; these include medical and robotics classes. We have an established tradition of academic excellence confirmed by student test scores: Advanced Placement, ACT, and SATs (all above the district, county, and state average). Shasta High has been recognized three times as a California Distinguished School. We have been recognized by "Newsweek" magazine as one of the nation's top high schools for thirteen consecutive years. Shasta High is committed to the principle that all students can learn and have the opportunity to achieve academic and personal success through rigorous coursework, the development of academic skills, and co-curricular activities.
Our vision and mission are driven by our Student Learning Outcomes (SLO's): Positive Communicators, Academically Excellent, and World Citizens. These SLO's are posted in every classroom. The core values are as follows: Every student will have an equal and equitable opportunity for success, staff members are ethical, motivational role models, focused on common goals, and the learning environment is safe, supportive, and challenging. We provide a full range of high-quality educational programs aligned with the California Curriculum Framework and District standards. We offer a safe learning environment where all students can succeed. Our mission is for all students to graduate being positive communicators, academically excellent, and world citizens.
