Welcome to Springfield High School, home of the Blue Devils!  SHS.Grad

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 2016, 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 Three service initiatives in the nation! 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

Mrs. Rhonda Kimmons, Principal

    #springfieldstrong 

And ... we're off!
To say that the first day of school for the Class of 2020 got a lot of hearts beating is an understatement! Congratulations to Mr. Turski and  Mr, Taylor, faculty, staff and student mentors for creating an incredible first day of school!  Great beginning and ending to the day - more about that later!

The first day of high school, and any school year for that matter, is significant for each student.  Fresh starts are important - and should be used, whether starting a new school for the first time or moving-up grade levels - to revisit goals, expectations and traditions.  At SHS, all are clearly defined.

On August 24th, our newest students learned how SHS will support them throughout their next four years to learn, grow, serve, and lead others.  There are so many Blue Devils traditions - and we all enjoyed watching as all experienced the fun of learning the words to the Fight Song, shortcuts to get around the building a little quicker and the best food in the cafeteria!!

Now - for the end of the day! A huge thanks to our Students In Action leaders and Springfield Firefighters for coordinating a HUGE service project during which all students and mentors learned the techniques for hands-only CPR.  As fun as it was - it was also a great reminder that being able to save another life is one of the ultimate acts of service to others. 

Academics - Athletics - Performing Arts - Service to Others . . . these four cornerstones are important aspects of the SHS culture.  We invite parents and the community to see how all combine to make SHS the best high school in the area.  Open House is on September 7th from 6:30-8 pm - stop in! 

BE A BLUE DEVIL FOR A DAY
The choice of which high school a student will attend is something that we take very seriously at SHS.  Each year, we invite members of our senior class to write letters to area 8th grade students to encourage the next generation of Blue Devils to take a serious look at "our school" when contemplating their future high school career.  

In his letter, SHS alumni Tommy Kleinfelter wrote this, “Throughout the school year, you will face many decisions that will impact your future. Before the end of the year, you will also have to decide which school you want to attend during your high school career!   High school will bring some of the best memories you will make in your life. During high school you will make lifelong friends, and you will have some of the best times of your life. Your high school years are amongst the most important years in front of you. During these four years you will shape who you are and decide what you want to do for the rest of your life. However, before you can even experience high school you need to decide where you want to attend high school, and I believe Springfield High School is just the place for you!"

Springfield High School welcomes students in grades 8-12 who live in our community but are currently attending schools outside of the district to become a “Blue Devil for a Day” to experience a typical school day. All visits take place with assistance from current Springfield “mentors.” Although schedules can be adjusted, it is suggested that guests spend an entire day with their mentor and visit both classes and with program/activity advisors.   Areas that will be presented include:

Academic Opportunities:
  - Availability of the Dual-Credit/*College Credit Plus program
  - College Scholarships Academic Competitions
  - Science Olympiad
  - Math/Science
  - Laws of Life Essay Contest

Athletic Opportunities:
