Welcome to Springfield High School, home of the Blue Devils!  Grad.14

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

The Impact of Heroin
Every media is being used to convey to all Lucas Country residents the dangers of Heroin use . . . still, the epidemic exists.  Area leaders, from law enforcement to funeral directors, are joining forces to educate area youth that the use of heroin and other opiates has become a public health crisis in the county, state, and beyond. 

Springfield Schools Superintendent Dr. Michael O'Shea and Sheriff John Tharp are in unison in the message that all efforts must be made to get the attention of citizens, especially our youth, to do their part to help stop the use Heroin. "Heroin overdoses are especially tragic because they are preventable .  We can and must take aggressive action to prevent the abuse of prescription medications and get assistance for those struggling with addiction.  Experts are telling us that Heroin overdoses in Lucas County are rising at alarming rates.  Springfield Schools remains committed to doing our part by educating  students about the crisis," offered Dr. O'Shea. 

On May 13th, Springfield High School offered a full-school assembly to raise student awareness of the Heroin crisis.  At the assembly, a panel, including:
Justin Soll - a recovering Heroin addict who began using Heroin during high school;
Connie Durham - a Lucas County Paramedic who has responded too many times to emergency calls involving the overdose of Heroin and other substances
Dennis Whaley & Damion Worthey - Lucas County Sheriff's Department DART (Drug Abuse Response Team) officers who spoke about the Sheriff's Department's innovative program;
Mindi Rossler  - The Addict's Mom (TAM) member and mother of recovering addict;
John & Laurie Clemons, parents of a deceased Heroin addict; and
Keith Walker - funeral director/owner who spoke on the rise of deaths in Lucas County. 

All messages were direct and reinforced that we must do more to stop the senseless deaths that occur from Heroin use and abuse.

Students were asked to take a stand against the use of Heroin.  We are asking everyone else to do the same.  We can end the crisis - but not without a great deal of education support, and action! 

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:
