Welcome to Springfield High School, home of the Blue Devils!
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 2015, Springfield High School's Students In Action program (coordinated through the prestigious national Jefferson Awards Foundation) earned the NATIONAL Ambassador GOLD Banner and was judged one of the best service initiative in the nation! Unique offerings such as the nationally respected JROTC, Science Olympiad, and other 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!"
*College Credit Plus 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
Ms. Rhonda Jemison, Principal
Boosters Model Service
Springfield High School is a busy place - - make no mistake, priority one is learning! After hours, too, it is rare that there isn't an event, activity, practice, game taking place. These don't happen without a lot of help and there are many opportunities for SHS students to learn important life lessons, gain important organizational, fundraising, and event planning skills from both teachers and other adults involved as members of our four booster organizations. At SHS, we invite parents and community members to join our Academic Boosters, Athletic Boosters, Band Boosters, and JROTC Boosters - all welcome new members, appreciate any time/assistance offered, and have tasks to keep any one busy throughout the school year!These dedicated "mentors" offer students a terrific examples of the importance of giving back . . . and show how much fun it can be to "do good!"
Last week, I was reminded by a friend that students rarely return after graduation and share that their fondest high school memories were made when taking a standardized test. Don't get me wrong - we will never relax the rigor or expectations for classroom instruction, however, especially during special times like Homecoming Week, it is the Booster-sponsored events that spark those fond memories and we need to thank each SHS Booster volunteer for being there for our students.
The students are watching . . . and they're learning how to "do good!"
BE A BLUE DEVIL FOR A DAY
In his letter to area 8th grade students, 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.
