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 2013, Springfield High School's Students In Action program (coordinated through the prestigious national Jefferson Awards for Public Service) earned the NATIONAL Ambassador Level 4th Place Award from a national panel of judges, as one of the four 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
Tradition of Success:
Springfield High School’s tradition of successful teams isn’t limited to athletics! This week, we’d like to celebrate with the members of Springfield's Quiz Bowl Team who swept recent matches at Maumee High School by defeating Toledo Islamic Academy 480-40 and then besting host Maumee 590-320! In those matches, T. J. B and Carla M led all scorers, while Tim A, Nate D, and Neal S also chipped-in with points. Team members also include Matthew H, Abigal M, Jessica W, Andrew M, Theresa C, and Maddie P. Our classroom teachers and Quiz Bowl Team Advisor Steve Searle have our scholars well prepared for each match – their record is 5 wins/3 losses for the first half of the season. We know that our team will continue to make us proud and we wish them well during the upcoming playoffs which begin after the holiday break!
