Congratulations to the SHS Class of 2015 - we are proud of each of the
277 scholars who helped earn over $6.5 million in scholarships!
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 for Public Service) earned the NATIONAL Ambassador GOLD Banner and was judged the best service initiative in the nation! Our students repeated their top finish in 2015 by achieving the national NATIONAL Ambassador GOLD Banner and in competition with the best of the best in the country, they achieved an impressive 3rd Place!
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
Thank you are two words that are never said enough and that don't come close to expressing how grateful Springfield High School students, faculty and staff are for the amazing support that we've received this year from our community. Appreciation resonates throughout the building - in our classrooms, it can be seen in so many ways. Most visible is technology that was made available through the efforts and grants provided by the Springfield Schools Foundation. Also, we anticipate the benefits of instructional support materials created through the district's receipt of the Straight A grant. This past week, the over 300 members of the Class of 2015 received over $54,000 in scholarships from local organizations. These funds, combined with the scholarships offered through colleges and universities, brought the total of dollars earned by our scholars to over $6 million dollars. That it the highest total ever achieved by a Springfield High School graduating class!
Outside of the classrooms, appreciation is seen by those receiving all that is made possible thanks to our parents, business leaders, and supporters. Our Booster organizations are tireless in their efforts to raise dollars - time and time again our parents rose to the occasion and raised money to cover expenses. Again this year, drama families built sets and raised funds to cover the expense of staging unforgettable shows. Both "The Diary of Anne Frank" and "Godspell will not soon be forgotten by those lucky enough to be in the audience! Let's talk about the JROTC Boosters - they flipped pancakes and did so many other things to raise funds needed to send the Drill Team to the Army's National Drill competition in Louisville, KY. And, how about those Academic and Band Boosters?Celebrating academic achievement is what we are all about and no one does this better than our tireless boosters. I have five words for anyone who doesn't know what the Band Boosters are all about - "the smell of grilling burgers!" If you'll keep reading, I'll keep praising folks!!
Last month, if you were driving along Airport Highway, you saw messages of support from area businesses. This month, you see messages of thanks on our school signs.
To be truthful, there just isn't a way to say "Thank You" enough for making sure we are and will remain #springfieldstrong!
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. 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:
· Availability of the Dual-Credit/Post-Secondary Options program
· College Scholarships
· Science Olympiad
· Laws of Life Essay Contest
· Students In Action initiative affiliated with the Jefferson Awards Foundation
Performing Arts Opportunities
· Drama Club (Plays, Musicals)
