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

During the school year, Springfield High School achieved an "Excellent" rating from the Ohio Department of Education.    We are very proud of the entire SHS family - students, parents, faculty, and staff - for consistently being recognized for outstanding academic achievement. We truly are committed to being exceptional - - without exception

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 Post-Secondary Options* 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 2014, Springfield High School's Students In Action program (coordinated through the prestigious national Jefferson Awards for Public Service) earned the NATIONAL Ambassador Banner and will soon compete to be judged as one of the best high school service programs in the nation!

Unique offerings such as the nationally respected JROTC, Science Olympiad, and foreign language classes 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!"

 

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

Testimonial from An SHS Parent

"My son came to Springfield High School from another area district and I am thrilled with this school! I just couldn't believe it when I received a telephone call from one of his teachers to tell me how well he was doing in class - this one-on-one attention from teachers started from day one and is fabulous."

Principal's Weekly Message

 

HOORAH!
The Springfield JROTC Drill Team returned recently from the Army JROTC National Drill Meet competing in all four of the events available. To put this in context, there are 1731 Army JROTC programs in the nation.  We continue to hold up our national reputation – only the best drill teams are selected to attend this competition. Again this year, Springfield placed in the Top 10 of all teams competing; 8th in Inspection, 8th in Regulation Drill, 6th in Color Guard and 6th in Exhibition Drill. Overall we placed 7th in national total team competition ranking – congratulations to all! 
 
We would be remiss to not include that in the Individual Drill Competition, held for the 1000 best drill cadets (there of 370,000 JROTC cadets), Springfield High School senior Anthony Pepper placed 1st in the Nation – that’s right – the best of all 370,000 cadets in the nation. 

The strength of our efforts remain the support from our cadre and boosters – congratulations to the Team for their outstanding work.  Congratulations to Anthony for earning the highest distinction available, and our course – congratulations to our supporters for helping to make these opportunities available for Springfield High School students!

BE A BLUE DEVIL FOR A DAY
In his letter to area 8th grade students, SHS senior 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:
