SHS SOAR: building a legacy of opportunity and excellence in inclusive education.
Welcome to the Skyrigde High School SOAR program - an aspiring world-class inclusive education program in Lehi, Utah. We are motivated by the inspiring core of values enshrined in our program title's acronym: Self-Determination, Opportunity, Achievement, and Respect.
Since the opening of Skyridge High School in August 2016, we have focused on providing a truly remarkable experience for each student enrolled in our program. We believe in providing opportunities for all students to grow and succeed in the general curriculum, in independent living skills, and in areas of unique or special interest to them. We hope you will join us in our mission to deliver a world-class educational experience to the students of Skyridge High School.
skyridge high school named a national unified champion School and given ESPN HONOR ROLL Status
Skyridge High School was recently recognized by Special Olympics as a National Unified Champion School. We were also recognized by ESPN as one of 34 2019 Honor Roll schools across the nation for our efforts to build and inclusive school and community. You can read more the about this in the Lehi Free Press. Another article in the Daily Herald highlighted our Unified P.E. and Athletics Programs.
A delegation from our school was also recently asked to present to the State Board of Education, the Utah High School Activities Association (UHSAA) Board of Directors, and Special Olympics Utah about our program and the impact of Unified Athletics. This video was part of the presentation (or click the image of the soccer team at left).
As a result of this recognition, the UHSAA and Special Olympics Utah presented a National Unified Champion School banner at our home football game on September 27. Thank you for all who attended and all who were there in spirit!
